Here are some of the most common urologic disorders that can a woman:
Urinary incontinence is a condition in which you will have no control over your bladder. Its severity ranges from
occasional leaking to a sudden, strong urge to urinate that you don’t get to the toilet in time. This condition is
related to the prostate gland and may be due to prostatitis and enlarged prostate.
∙Urinary Tract Infections
A urinary tract infection is an infection in your urinary system, which involves your kidney, bladder, and
urethra. When bacteria get into your urinary system it causes infection and inflammation thus urinary tract
infection (UTI). To know more about the symptoms and causes of this condition, please click here.
An overactive bladder is a condition that causes frequent and sudden urge to urinate, especially during the
night. People with this condition often leak urine immediately when they feel the urge to pass urine.
Bladder stones are the hardened mineral deposits that form in the bladder. Sometimes they don’t cause any
symptoms and pass out of the body on their own, but sometimes they need medical procedures to be
removed. To know more about the symptoms and causes of this condition, please click here.
Kidney stones are mineral deposits that become concentrated enough in the urine to form crystals in the
kidney and causes severe pain when they pass in the urinary tract and get stuck.
Bladder pain syndrome, or BPS, is a chronic disease that affects your bladder. It is also known as interstitial
cystitis (IC). This is when the wall in your bladder becomes inflamed causing the bladder to be very sensitive.
BPS causes frequent visits to the bathroom as many as 40-60 times a day in severe cases. It also keeps you up at
night. To know more about the symptoms and causes of this condition, please click here.
Pelvic pain can happen in both women and men, it might be caused by infections, abnormalities in internal
organs, or pain from the pelvic bones. In women, pelvic pain can be a sign that she has a problem with her
reproductive organs. This type of pain can vary and it may be sudden and severe or it could last for 6 months
or longer. To know more about the symptoms and causes of this condition, please click here.
∙Pelvic organ prolapse happens when one or more pelvic organs, the vagina, uterus, bladder, urethra, small
intestine, and rectum, drop from their normal position. This is often caused by the weakening of the pelvic
floor, sometimes due to labor and vaginal birth or due to old age. Other risk factors include connective tissue
disorder, obesity, and frequent constipation. When a pelvic organ drops, it often bulges out of the vagina.
This month, as we celebrate Mother’s Day, we would like to highlight the importance of women’s urologic health.
These conditions are thought to be just a man’s problem. However, these conditions can affect women as much as
men, and you need to be aware of it if ever it happens to you or another woman in your life.
