Difficulty having a bowel movement is a classical sign of rectocele .
Also patient may need to press the fingers on the bulge in your vagina to help push stool out during a bowel movement .
You need to consult an obs/gyn doctor for further evaluation and management .
Further treatment may include Kegel excercises .
In severe cases surgery may be required for rectocele .
You should drink plenty of water .
You should increase fibre in diet .Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables .
You may add a fibre supplement like metamucil in your diet .
Also Metamucil is helpful for patients with IBS.
As such rectocele may cause constipation and incomplete defecation .

So it is important to consult an obs/gyn doctor for further management of rectocele .
