Women are much more likely to get a UTI than are men since the female urethra is much shorter than the male urethra. If infrequent, UTIs can be tested for and treated as they occur. However, if they are recurrent, prevention strategies are available. Sometimes, it is necessary to do certain diagnostic tests to see if there are any risks for recurrent UTIs.
The most common issues women experience that are related to the general urinary tract are infections, incontinence and fistulas.
When should a woman consider visiting a urologist? Since symptoms can often be indicative of a variety of different conditions it isn’t always clear-cut when you should turn to a urology specialist. Our medical doctors specialize in treating all urological issues such as:
Mild urinary incontinence can be managed by lifestyle modification such as keeping a moderate fluid intake of 1.5-2L per day, limitation of drinks that may irritate the bladder such as tea, coffee, fizzy drinks and weight reduction. Bladder training and pelvic floor exercises are effective options under the instruction of a physiotherapist. Oral medications are available for overactive bladder symptoms and urge incontinence. Five to 10% of patients with an overactive bladder may require bladder Botox injection for severe urge incontinence if oral medication cannot be tolerated. For women with stress urinary incontinence that cannot be improved by pelvic floor exercise, a minimal invasive surgery (insertion of mid-urethral tape) will help to reinforce the pelvic floor and urethral sphincter. The procedure can be performed as a day procedure with a cure rate of over 90%.
