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.
