In brief: It varies.

The most common symptoms are a mass bulging into the vaginal opening, pelvic pressure or discomfort, and difficulty with bowel or bladder function.
Many women can feel something bulging through the vaginal opening. To check, place fingers at the vaginal opening while seated on a toilet and bear down as if you are trying to have a bowel movement.

In brief: Vaginal bulging

A cystocele is a type of pelvic organ prolapse which can cause symptoms of vaginal pressure and fullness.
In some cases, you can actually see the vaginal wall bulging through the opening of the vagina. A cystocele may also be associated with bladder symptoms such as urgency, frequency, leakage, and difficulty emptying the bladder. If you are having any of these symptoms, see your gynecologist
