Types of Cystocele
A cystocele is mild (grade 1) when the bladder droops only a short way
into the vagina. A more severe (grade 2) cystocele means that the bladder
has sunk into the vagina far enough to reach the opening of the vagina.
The most advanced (grade 3) cystocele occurs when the bladder bulges out
through the opening of the vagina.
