Female Urology Q & A
What should I know about female urology?
Female urology is a medical specialty focused on the unique needs of a woman’s urinary system. Due to your anatomical structure and many life changes, including pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause, you’re at risk of developing many conditions that affect your urinary system, like urinary incontinence and urinary tract infections.
The experienced team at Kasraeian Urology provide the specialized care you need to resolve your urinary issues.
What types of conditions require urological care?
Many conditions that affect women should be managed by specialists in female urology like the team at Kasraeian Urology. Common conditions include:
Pelvic floor dysfunction and pain
Your pelvic floor muscles are a group of muscles that serve as a hammock to support your bladder, uterus, and rectum. These muscles help you control bowel and bladder function.
If you have pelvic floor dysfunction, then you might not have full control over your bladder and you could leak urine. It’s also common to experience pain during urination with pelvic floor dysfunction.
The team of specialists at Kasraeian Urology provide treatment for pelvic floor dysfunction to relieve your symptoms and pain.
Urinary tract infection (UTI)
Due to your anatomical structure, you’re more at risk of developing UTIs than men. Treatment usually includes a round of antibiotics.
Urinary incontinence is common in women. The experienced team at Kasraeian Urology specialize in diagnosing and treating all types of urinary incontinence, including stress urinary incontinence and overactive bladder, to help you regain control.
The experienced urological team provides treatment for other issues that affect women, including vulvodynia (vulvar pain) and interstitial cystitis (inflammation of the bladder wall).
