I agree with Dr Matthews. I would also add difficulty with intercourse and difficulty maintaining tampons. We also see low back pain with prolapse.

In brief: To a woman herself

Vaginal prolapse feels like a bulge near the entrance to the vagina or coming out.
It can occur with the uterus in place or after hysterectomy. Urinary frequency or feelings of incomplete bladder emptying are also possible symptoms. Specific hernias are called vaginal vault prolaspe, uterine prolapse, rectocele and cystocele. A gyn or urogynecologist can provide further evaluation.

In brief: Bulge at vag opening

Symptoms include the feeling of or having a physical "bulge" near or at the vaginal opening or prolapse that has to be pushed back into the vagina.
Also, the inability to urinate or have a bowel movement properly/completely is also possible. Pelvic pain/pressure, pain during sex, or difficulty with sex/ placing tampons can also occur.
