Causes and Symptoms of Prolapsed Bladder

DNB (Urology), MS - General Surgery, MBBS

Ask Free Question
A bladder is an organ that stores urine in the body. A prolapsed bladder occurs when the tissue present between the vagina and the bladder is stretched, resulting in a bulge in the bladder. This can result in complications such as leakage of urine and difficulty in passing the same. Based on the severity of the damage, it is classified into four categories -
 


Mild: a small area of the bladder bulges in the vagina
Moderate: the bladder bulges near the vaginal opening
Severe: protrusion of the bladder occurs through the vaginal opening
Complete: the entire area of the bladder protrudes completely from the body via the opening of the vagina


The symptoms of a prolapsed bladder are: 


Feeling of intense pressure around the pelvic area
Infections related to the bladder
Pain during sexual intercourse
Tissues bulging out through the vaginal opening
Pain in the lower back region


Prolapsed bladder is caused by:


Childbirth: it can cause ligaments and pelvic muscles to weaken thus increasing their vulnerability to a prolapsed bladder
The chances of this disorder increases when one is overweight
Lifting heavy things
Strain caused by bowel movements 
In some cases, it may result from a chronic cough
Menopause, as it limits production of estrogen which helps in maintaining healthy tissues in the vagina


It is advised to check with a medical professional if you experience these symptoms, as a prolapsed bladder can worsen with time if left untreated.

Missing period is the most important symptom. To confirm you should get urine pregnancy test done at home and if negative keep repeating every week till menses comes. Apart from that nausea and vomiting and breast fullness will start exactly after 1 month of intercourse or 15 days of missed period.

It goes without saying that you want a birth that is healthy for you and your baby. The care and treatment that you get while in labor, would affect you physically, mentally and emotionally, and have an impact on your health, and that of your baby. So think about how you would like to give birth. Choose your healthcare provider carefully. Meet more than one care providers and try to assess what they feel about:
1. Your having a friend/ your partner/ a relative with you during labour for support.
2. Your wanting to have your labour start on its own.
3. Your wanting to move around, and try different positions during labour.
4. Your eating and drinking during labour.
5. Using interventions like induction, i/v lines, foetal monitors, episiotomy, etc.
6. Your wanting to breastfeed your baby within the first hour of delivery.
7. Performing infant care procedures like cutting cord, apgar assessment, taking temperature, footprints, etc. With the baby held close to you.

It depends on the age of the girl also. Sometimes it takes more than 2 years of trial for a girl to get pregnant after she is 25+. But you can consult a Gynaecologist for it and get it confirmed regarding any problem or not.

You should avoid next pregnancy for 6 months from the last abortion which you already did. Chances of repeat abortion or pretem delivery increases if one becomes pregnant within 6 months of miscarriage. No special treatment or tests are needed if you had only one miscarriage or spontaneous abortion.

Hi lybrate-user. The only thing that you need to do is to immediately get an ultrasound scan done as soon as you realise that you are pregnant as there is high chance of recurrence. There is actually no way to prevent an ectopic pregnancy. All the best trupti.

Actually if this is first pregnancy, she will feel the movement of the baby after or at around 5 to 6th month. As she is not experienced, she can not feel baby's movement just now. And you must go to a gynecologist for regular check ups.

You should do a pregnancy test. Take the urine pregnancy test or do a more conclusive serum beta hcg test to be sure you are not pregnant. If you are pregnant, kindly get an ultrasound done to rule out any tubal pregnancy.
