A urethrocele is a type of pelvic organ prolapse in which the urethra, the tube that carries urine from the bladder to the outside of the body, bulges into the vagina. It is caused by a weakening of the muscles and ligaments that support the urethra.

Urethrocele Symptoms

The symptoms of a urethrocele can vary depending on the severity of the prolapse. Mild urethroceles may not cause any symptoms, while more severe urethroceles can cause the following symptoms:

A feeling of fullness or pressure in the vagina

A bulge in the vagina

Pain or discomfort during sex

Urinary incontinence, especially when coughing, sneezing, or laughing

Difficulty emptying the bladder completely

Urethrocele Causes

The main causes of a urethrocele are:

  • Age: The risk of developing a urethrocele increases with age. This is because the muscles and ligaments that support the urethra weaken as we get older.
  • Childbirth: Repeated childbirth can put stress on the pelvic floor muscles and ligaments, increasing the risk of a urethrocele.
  • Obesity: Excess weight puts pressure on the pelvic floor muscles, which can contribute to a urethrocele.
  • Genetics: Some women are more likely to develop a urethrocele due to their genes.
  • Other medical conditions: Certain medical conditions, such as chronic coughing or constipation, can increase the risk of a urethrocele.

Urethrocele Treatment

The treatment for a urethrocele depends on the severity of the prolapse and the symptoms. Mild urethroceles may not require any treatment, but more severe urethroceles may require one or more of the following treatments:

Lifestyle changes:

  • These changes can help to reduce the pressure on the pelvic floor muscles and prevent the prolapse from getting worse. They include:
  • Losing weight if you are overweight or obese
  • Avoiding heavy lifting and straining
  • Kegel exercises to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles

Avoiding Constipation

Pessary: A pessary is a device that is inserted into the vagina to support the urethra. Pessaries can be used to treat mild to moderate urethroceles.

Surgery: Surgery is usually only recommended for severe urethroceles that do not respond to other treatments. There are several different types of surgery for urethrocele repair, and the best type of surgery for you will depend on the severity of your prolapse and your individual circumstances.

Urethrocele Complications

Complications of a urethrocele are rare, but they can include:

  • Urinary tract infections
  • Pain or discomfort during sex
  • Inability to empty the bladder completely
  • Recurrent prolapse

There are no surefire ways to prevent a urethrocele, but there are some things you can do to reduce your risk:

  • Maintain a healthy weight.
  • Exercise regularly.
