Urology is also for women

It is quite common to describe the urologist with different diseases and ailments related to men, but nothing could be further from the truth.

As a specialty, urology treats diseases that affect everything related to the urinary tract and, just like men, women can also suffer from bladder and kidney ailments, and if necessary, they also need to go to an urologist.

Males are undoubtedly the main target due to prostate pathologies, but there are also many cases of pathologies for women: incontinence and urinary tract infections. These diseases affect significantly their quality of life, as well as pathologies similar to those of men, such as renal lithiasis (stones), bladder and kidney tumours.

How to prevent urinary incontinence?

The loss of bladder control is a very common pathology among women of any age, although it is true that the odds of suffering from it increases with age and this can be treated with a couple of easy steps:

- Avoid urinary containment.

- Urinate somewhat frequently

- Avoid overweight.

- Reduce the use of substances that stimulate the bladder, such as caffeine, alcohol, and some medications such as diuretics.

- Avoid uncontrolled efforts that may cause weakness in the pelvic floor.

- Exercises that help maintain muscle tone.

- Finally, and most importantly, after childbirth, take care of your pelvic health through exercises.

Incontinence types and how to treat it

There are two main types of urinary incontinence: stress incontinence and urge incontinence.

Urge incontinence, which is the accidental loss of urine associated with a need to urinate, can be improved with medical treatment.

Stress incontinence, which is what we experience when doing physical activity or movements such as coughing, sneezing, running or lifting heavy objects, can be treated in two ways.

If it is mild, it can be treated with a pelvic floor rehabilitation and the improvement will be significant. However, if the incontinence is more advanced, surgery may be performed. Currently, they are minimally invasive treatments with much more favourable results than those of a few years ago.

At Juaneda we encourage both men and women to visit their urology specialist in order to treat their ailments effectively.
