hs I am not constipated at the moment. The pain is worse thru the night when I lay on my side and especially when I sit down. The pain is inside up high
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Norm S., Board Certified OB/GYN replied 2 years ago
A rectocele doesn't generally cause pain. I think most likely the pain is from something else. I would try to see an OB/GYN doctor for evaluation and to figure out what is causing the pain. You might have an enterocele, which is where the small intestines herniate out through the vagina. It may be associated with a rectocele. If the enterocele is getting squeezed off, it can cause much pain.
Or perhaps there is something else causing the pain. Often the emergency room doctors may not be skilled at evaluating pain such as this, but they could help to determine how serious it is, and get you to a specialist if necessary.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
