could bladder prolapse cause recurrent urinary tract infection?

Sometimes: If the bladder prolapse is making it difficult to empty your bladder then that can lead to urinary tract infections. A visit to your doctor to check how much urine is in your bladder after you void is a quick test to see if that is the cause of your infections.

Yes, varying degrees: If you see urine under the microscope, you will see red blood cells. Although gross blood in urine occurs, hemorrhagic cystitis, it is uncommon.
