Yeah, this discomfort always comes after my second son birth. It's a natural aging process as being a mommy. But i still want to know how to cure it ? Any self-treatment?
Hello Merlin, Giving birth causes muscle straining, muscle straining leads to fallen bladder. I'll bet you're a super mom, and have heavy lifting work occasionally. The treatment of fallen bladder depends on the staging. My recommendation is that you find some time to visit a doctor, and find out the staging of your situation. If it's stage 1, usually there's no treatment but you'll need to avoid heavy lifting. If it's stage 2 & 3, there're ways to help. A lot of women are great as mum and wife. You've got so many things to deal with every day so you don't have time to visit a doctor. But your health is the wealth of the family, and women should all be good to yourselves. All the best. HTQ
Do kegels everyday before you get out of bed to strengthen your muscles down there and do not lift heavy objects over 20 pounds maybe less than that.
This is a good suggestion!
I have bad cramps in the pev area& bladder fill full all the time even after I gone potty.
Inside the lower abdomen, something is messing around. Get an ultrasound, let's find the bad guy.

A cystocele ― also known as a prolapsed, herniated, dropped, or fallen bladder (where your urine or “water” is stored) ― occurs when ligaments that hold your bladder up and the muscle between a woman’s vagina and bladder stretches or weakens, allowing the bladder to sag into the vagina.

There are 3 grades of cystocele:

  • Grade 1 (mild): The bladder drops only a short way into the vagina.
  • Grade 2 (moderate): The bladder drops to the opening of the vagina.
  • Grade 3 (severe): The bladder bulges through the opening of the vagina.

Fallen bladder


  • Having to run to the bathroom frequently to pass water, or just a feeling as if you have to go a lot.
  • Unwanted leakage of urine (incontinence). The fallen bladder may stretch the opening of the urethra (the tube through which urine passes). This can cause urine to leak out during coughing, sneezing, laughing, or moving in a way that puts pressure on the bladder.
  • Incomplete emptying of the bladder.
  • Frequent urinary tract infections.
  • Feeling of fullness, heaviness, or pain in the pelvic area or lower back. This feeling may get worse when the person is standing, lifting, coughing, or as the day goes on.
  • The bladder bulging into or out of the vagina.
  • Painful sex.
  • Problems inserting tampons or applicators.
So what can be done of this falling bladder problem? Or going to the doctor the only thing that can be done
You can try physical therapy first such as contracting your anus by yourself if the falling bladder problem is slight. If it is as severe as when the bladder comes out, you are suggested to see the doctor and surgery is needed.
