Urinary incontinence management for women

Urinary problems can affect women of all age groups. The problems are such that they can affect their day-to-day chores; restrict their personal, family and social activities and ultimately, the quality of their life. Compounding reasons can even lead to the condition of depression and sometimes unpleasantness in married life. It is important that women shed their inhibitions, step out and seek medical help at the earliest, rather than assume that these minor conditions will disappear soon or may not lead to serious conditions later on. The most common urinary problems encountered are: recurrent urinary infection, urine leak, frequency, urgency, and urge-leak.

The most common urinary problems encountered are: recurrent urinary infection, urine leak, frequency, urgency, and urge-leak. Common symptoms for urinary infection include - burning pain during or after passing urine, lower tummy pain, back-ache, fever or chills, blood in the urine, frequency, urge or leak. Vaginal infections precipitate or coexist with urinary infections. Urine leak could be due to urge-leak or secondary to stress-leak. Other problems include - difficulty in starting to pass urine (require pressure in lower tummy to start to urinate) or have poor flow or the sense of incomplete emptying. Diabetes, Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Lumbar disc prolapse, Spinal Injuries etc. can affect the bladder - In most conditions, timely intervention has proved effective with proper evaluation and appropriate treatment. It is imperative that women with any of the above symptoms/ indications relating to urinary problems visit an Urologist at the earliest - treat the condition in the early stage itself, thereby preventing compounding serious or chronic conditions like urosepsis and kidney failure.
