Anterior Prolapse – What is it??
The weakening and sagging or falling of the urinary bladder into the vagina.
Women who have vaginally delivered one or more children have a higher risk of developing an anterior prolapse. 
- Physical examination by a general physician is required for confirmation.
- Affects only women.
- Lab tests and X-Ray or ultrasound imaging are often required.
- Can be physically painful.
Cystocele is also called Anterior Prolapse. Depending on the time and type of manifestation, it has been segmented into four grades - Grade 1 (mild), Grade 2 (moderate), Grade 3 (severe), and Grade 4 (complete). The common factors for cystocele development are advancing age, childbirth, obesity, heavy weight lifting, constipation, severely strained pelvic muscle during childbirth, menopause, and previous pelvic surgery.
Ages Affected - no particular age group faces higher risk as anterior prolapse depends more on the physical health of the woman.
Symptoms include pelvic heaviness, aching, or pressure in the pelvis and bulging in the vagina, which is why getting evaluated by a doctor is necessary.
