FemiClinic is a leading medical center in the treatment of urogynecological diseases and pelvic floor disorders. The center provides consultations with leading medical specialists urologists and gynecologists.
Urogynecology is a subspecialty of gynecology and not every obstetrician practices it. The specialty deals with clinical problems related to pelvic floor and bladder dysfunction. Pelvic floor disorders affect the bladder, reproductive organs and bowel. Urogynaecologists are increasingly applying modern best practices to women who have undergone traumatic vaginal delivery.
What are the causes of urinary incontinence?
– Contraction of the bladder and uterus in women, especially after childbirth;
– Inflammation of the bladder or urethral lining;
– Growths on the mucous membrane;
– Nervous diseases to prostate enlargement in men.
In women, the bladder and urinary tract are in contact with the muscle layer known as the lower pelvic floor muscles. They help the urinary tract to open. When these muscles weaken or their elasticity deteriorates, uncontrolled leakage of urine may occur.
Symptoms arising from the lower urinary tract often resemble gynecological ones. Conversely, some urinary symptoms may be caused by diseases of the genital organs without urological disease being present. Therefore, regular prophylactic examination is the only way to detect a disease at an early stage in which it can be treated.
