Female Urology Q & A

What is female urology?

Female urology focuses on conditions of the urinary system that uniquely affect women. Women’s pelvic regions are different from men’s pelvic regions, so they’re susceptible to different conditions, disorders, and malformations. Additionally, there are many urologic conditions that women are more likely to get than men or that affect them in different ways.

At Advanced Urology Medical Offices, the team is well-versed in female urology and can form a diagnosis promptly after assessing your symptoms. They work closely with you to make a treatment plan that’s personalized to suit your needs. 

What urological conditions are unique to females?

Female urology consists of urological conditions, and their treatments, that exclusively or predominately affect women. Complications included in female urology include:

  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Pelvic pain
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Overactive bladder
  • Interstitial cystitis (bladder pain syndrome)
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Urogenital fistula (holes in your urinary system)

Commonly reported symptoms that may indicate a female urology complication include:

  • Urinary leakage
  • Frequent urination
  • Pelvic pain or discomfort
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Vaginal bleeding

If you have symptoms affecting your pelvic region or your vagina, a trip to Advanced Urology Medical Offices may be in order. 

When should I visit a urologist for female urology?

A trip to the urologist can be embarrassing given the symptoms you might experience, but booking your appointment once you notice symptoms could make your treatment easier and your recovery speedier. 

Many women instinctively go straight to the gynecologist when they see symptoms affecting their pelvic region. Often, gynecologists prescribe the same treatments as a urologist, but only a urologist can help you get to the root of the problems with your urinary system. 

If another doctor doesn’t refer you to the specialists at Advanced Urology Medical Offices, you should book an appointment upon seeing that you have symptoms affecting your urination.
