Anon - Can you tell us more about why you're asking this question? Have you discussed this with your doctor? Are you in pain or is there any other reason why you would question whether or not you can walk?
We'd like to help, but the reason for your question isn't clear to us. Pat

No I am in no pain. I have a cystocele and seen this website and thought I would ask..I seen you had answered other woman such things and didn't want to have to go to the doctor if I could get my answer here. I need to keep walking if it will cause me no harm.. I am 47 and have went through menapause and like most woman at that age I need to exercise some if possible.. Thanks for your time..

Hi Sassy

You really should check with your doc because your specific situation may have an effect on exercise recommendations. One thing with cystocele is that you do not want to raise pressure in your abdomen. Anything that would cause straining or pushing might be a problem. Walking is low impact, and does not usually raise intra-abdominal pressure so it may be okay, but again, it is good to check with your doc to make sure it is appropriate in your specific situation with your specific health history.

Thank you for writing, and good luck.
