Pelvic Pain

Pelvic Pain

The most common causes of pelvic pain include endometriosis, vaginal atrophy (lack of estrogen stimulation to the vaginal tissues), scarring related to previous vaginal surgery and spasm of the pelvic floor muscles.

Urinary Tract Infections

Urinary Tract Infections

Urinary Tract Infections can occur anywhere along the urinary tract including the bladder and kidneys. These infections are usually caused by bacteria found in the colon, such as E. coli. 40% of women will have a urinary tract infection in their lifetime.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Do you have pelvic pressure or a bulge coming from their vagina? Prolapse can involve the vaginal wall overlying the bladder or the rectum and the uterus can prolapse (or come down) as well. Even if you have had a hysterectomy (your uterus has been removed) you can still have prolapse of the top of the vagina or vaginal walls.

Urinary Incontinence

Urinary Incontinence

Do you leak when you cough, laugh or sneeze? You may have stress urinary incontinence. This condition can often be treated with a simple outpatient procedure.

Do you often urinate urgently and can’t get there in time? You might have overactive bladder. Some people have urinary frequency but don’t lose urine on the way to the bathroom. Others can’t hold their bladder and have to wear pads on a daily basis.

Many treatment options exist for urinary incontinence, schedule a consultation today.

Vaginal Atrophy

Vaginal Atrophy

As women age and go through menopause, the estrogen levels decline. This results in a thinning of the vaginal tissue or epithelium. We refer to this as vaginal atrophy.

Vaginal atrophy can result in vaginal dryness, burning, discomfort or pain with intercourse, and recurrent vaginal infections or urinary tract infections.
