Cause of Cystocele: Childbirth or other physical exertion

Cause of Cystocele: A cystocele may result from muscle straining while giving birth. Other kinds of straining--such as heavy lifting or repeated straining during bowel movements--may also cause the bladder to fall. The hormone estrogen helps keep the muscles around the vagina strong. When women go through menopause (when they stop having periods), their bodies stop making estrogen, so the muscles around the vagina and bladder may grow weak. 1
