Cletus Georges Talks About Certain Urology Issues faced By Women

A lot of conditions related to urology are commonly linked to just men, notably the ones concerning prostate health. However, it is vital to note that there are also several urology conditions specific to women. Conditions like incontinence, interstitial cystitis, overactive bladder, pelvic organ prolapsed, pelvic pain and UTI commonly affect women.  While talking about urgency, leakage, pelvic floor dysfunction and other issues might be uncomfortable for women, it is important that they visit an experienced urologist like Cletus Georges when faced with such problems.

Urinary system comprises of the bladder, the kidneys, the urethra, and the ureters. It is responsible for producing, storing and eliminating urine. Urine is created by kidneys, and the liquid waste is subsequently transferred from the kidney to the bladder through tubes called ureters. When the bladder is full, the waste gets urinated through the urethra. This is a complicated system that is susceptible to diseases and issues that may cause infections and blockages. Here are a few common urologic problems faced by women:

  • Urinary Incontinence: There essentially are three key categories of urinary incontinence. This includes urge incontinence, stress incontinence, and overflow incontinence. Simply speaking, urinary incontinence implies to the involuntary loss of urine. Such a condition is most common among women, and there are multiple reasons for it, such as pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, nerve damage and more. Once the cause of the condition has been determined, urologists generally work with the patients to identify the best possible solution for their particular case as the symptoms and body of each woman is different.
  • Overactive Bladder (OA): Overactive Bladder refers a group of urinary symptoms. It is also used to describe a condition that is not tied to a urinary disease but to its specific symptoms. These symptoms involve sudden urges to urinate with or without loss of urine, general increase in urinary frequency, as well as waking up more than once during the night to urinate.
  • Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs): UTI are infections that can have to do with any part of the unitary systems.  UTI can cause frequent urination, backaches, fevers, pelvic pain and more. It may even lead to Dysuria, which implies painful or difficult urination.  There are many factors that can cause UTIs, such as blockage in the ureters, urinary incontinence, blockage in the ureters, urinary incontinence and so on.  UTIs are treated with antibiotics.  However, any person suffering from chronic UTIs requires a more aggressive treatment plan.
  • Interstitial Cystitis: This is a painful bladder condition in which symptoms include suprapubic or perineal pain. It can also lead to pain in case the bladder is full followed by relief subsequent urination, dyspareunia and more.
