A rectocele is a type of prolapse. It is a bulge that develops from the lowest part of the front of the rectum into the back wall of the vagina.
Rectoceles usually occur as a result of damage to the tissues between the rectum and vagina which occurs during childbirth. The tearing leads to a weakness in the tissues and with time a bulge develops. Rectoceles may also develop in women who have to strain excessively to open their bowels.
