Rectocele prolapse at Kegel8

What is a Rectocele?

A rectocele, also called a proctocele, is a prolapse (falling down) of the bowel. It usually results from a tear in the normally tough, fibrous, sheet-like divider between the rectum and vagina (rectovaginal septum), causing a bulge to protrude into the back vaginal wall when there is a bowel movement.

Rectocele can be caused by childbirth or a hysterectomy. If the rectocele is small there may be no signs or symptoms at all. If the rectocele is large there may be a noticeable protrusion through the vagina. A rectocele may cause discomfort and pelvic heaviness - it may also make passing a stool difficult - sometimes resulting in the woman having to use her fingers inside her vagina to push the bowel back into position.
