In brief: Bladder prolapse

Although Estrace cream can assist in keeping the epithelium of the vagina distensible, post menopausal bladder prolapse is more function of the lack of bladder ligament support or prior vaginal childbirth trauma.
Patient's who have had multiple vaginal deliveries are more likely to see a more rapid bladder prolapse then not.
