Sexual Health

A very common group of conditions that urology covers is sexual health. This is anything relating to a family/female’s reproductive health concerns if applicable. Sexual health conditions include the following:

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.
