Incontinence and Urinary Issues

Many women experience urinary conditions and disorders, which can cause problems with your urinary tract and bladder health.

Female Urinary Incontinence

This is actually a common issue for women more than men and can cause leaky bladders and overwhelming urges to urinate or false alarms.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when muscles and ligaments in the pelvic floor are stretched or become too weak to hold the organs in the pelvis in their proper place.

Stress Urinary Incontinence

Stress Urinary Incontinence generally occurs when your pelvic muscles are no longer strong enough to keep the opening from the bladder neck closed when you are under physical stress.

Urinary Tract Infection

A Urinary tract infection, or a UTI, is an infection in the urinary system that is typically found in the bladder. Urinary tract infections are more often found in women than men.

Vaginal Atrophy

Vaginal atrophy includes symptoms of vaginal dryness, inflammation, and general discomfort of the genital region due to thinning tissues within the vaginal wall.

Uterine Fibroid Treatment

Women who experience daily struggles due to their fibroid symptoms are encouraged to seek treatment because these symptoms will likely only worsen as the fibroid(s) continue to grow even larger over time.

Urge Incontinence

Women have unexpected an urgent need to urinate over 8 times per day and may also have a leaky bladder.

Hematuria (Blood in Urine)

The medical term “hematuria” is used whenever an individual has blood in their urine.

Overactive Bladder

Bladder control problems affect one in six adults. Find relief with InterStim.

Bladder Prolapse

Instances in which the bladder bulges out of place are known as bladder prolapse.

Frequent Urination

Many individuals can experience frequent urges to urinate. This sensation may be quite brief, or it can be a recurring issue that signals a more complex medical condition or disorder.
