Urogynecology Services In Miami, FL
You have encountered the terms urologist and gynecologist, but what does the urogynecologist do? Urogynecologist is a medical practitioner with residency in either urology or obstetrics and gynecology. Further specialization often ensues, with the main focus of helping female patients with problems concerning pelvic organs, connective tissue, and muscles. The pelvic floor includes muscles, tissue, connective tissue, nerves and ligaments that keep the vagina, bladder, uterus, and rectum in place.
Urogynecologists treats problems with leakage (urinary incontinence), pelvic prolapse, cystocele, rectocele, and overactive bladder. Urinary incontinence is a problem more common in women and vaginal childbirth is just one of the risk factors associated with it. Others include genetic predisposition, diuretic medication, chronic constipation, smoking, and obesity. Overactive bladders often mean experiencing leakage as well as frequent urges to urinate. Reasons are most commonly neurological, inflammations, and in some cases – unknown.
Pelvic floor conditions as previously described are the main focus of urogynecology, and incontinence is just one manifestation. Others, more severe forms, include pelvic organ prolapse. Risk factors are the same as those of urinary incontinence, with emphasis on obesity. In case you experience any of the following symptoms:
Sense of heaviness, aching, or fullness in the vagina
- Leaking pee when coughing, laughing, or spasming stomach muscles during exercise
- Sudden and urgent need to pee, frequently
- Repetitive infections of the urinary tract
- Hard time emptying the bladder
- A bulge or visible protrusions on the vagina
The majority of these problems tend to develop over time and are not congenital. Having a strong relationship of trust with your doctor and urogynecologist is vital. Trustful and meaningful sharing of all problems that you may have will lead to understanding and adequate healing.
