Rectocele

A rectocele is a form of pelvic organ prolapse in which the rectum moves from its normal position and presses against the back wall of the vagina. This is also called posterior vaginal wall prolapse. A rectocele can happen when the muscles and tissues that hold the rectum in place get weak or damaged.
