Female Urology Q&A

What is female urology?

Urology is known for specializing in men’s reproductive health. Since women have gynecologists who don’t treat problems involving the male reproductive system, they often believe that urologists don’t treat women.

But urology deals with problems affecting the urinary tract in women and men. Women can visit Pasadena Urological Medical Group for any problems affecting their kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra.

What health conditions does female urology include?

Pasadena Urological Medical Group treats a wide variety of female-focused urological conditions, including:

  • Stress urinary incontinence
  • Overactive bladder
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Interstitial cystitis (painful bladder)
  • Kidney stones
  • Bladder stones
  • Bladder cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Urethral cancer
  • Pelvic organ prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse occurs when the pelvic floor muscles weaken. These muscles hold your bladder, rectum, uterus, and vagina in place. When the muscles weaken, they let an organ fall out of its usual position.

What symptoms indicate a female urology problem?

Many symptoms associated with female urology problems involve difficulty urinating. But with such a wide range of conditions, you can experience a wide range of symptoms. Some of the most common symptoms include:

  • Uncontrollable urine leakage
  • Frequent urination
  • Strong urge to urinate
  • Pain or burning when urinating
  • Needing to urinate during the night

  • Lower abdominal pain
