Caption: Rectocele. Prolapse of the back vaginal wall into the opening of the vagina. The rectum is pushing against weakened tissues in the vaginal wall. A rectocele is usually associated with a cystocele (protrusion of the bladder into the front wall of the vagina) or prolapsed uterus. Depending on its size, a rectocele may cause no symptoms or may lead to constipation by interfering with muscle contraction in the rectum. Exercises to strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor may help to relieve symptoms. If they do not an operation may be recommended to tighten the tissues at the back of the vagina to support the rectum.
