Bladder issues are not uncommon for women to experience as a result of giving birth or the natural part of aging, and these issues are not something that women have to just tolerate. Your physician can provide treatments that can help to reduce or eliminate bladder control issues, or the issues may be caused by another medical problem that can also be treated to eliminate the side effect of bladder dysfunction. You should see your physician if:
- You are embarrassed by urine leakage, or have avoided activities as a result of it
- You feel urgency to urinate and rush to the bathroom, but sometimes don’t make it in time
- You often feel the need to urinate, but are unable to pass urine
- You notice your urine stream is getting weaker
- You feel as if you can’t empty your bladder well
It may be helpful for both you and your physician if you keep a bladder diary in the days leading up to your medical appointment. This detailed, day-to-day record of your symptoms will help your physician narrow down potential causes of your bladder control problems and recommend the best treatment. Treatments may include lifestyle changes to train your bladder, such as pelvic-strengthening exercises and following a schedule for when you drink fluids and use the bathroom, medications, or surgery. Your physician will also conduct a medical examination to determine whether your bladder dysfunction is being caused by another condition, and work with you to develop a treatment plan if it is.
Our women’s health physicians understand that discussing your bladder control problems in Detroit can be embarrassing or uncomfortable, and will be considerate and empathetic throughout the process of treating your condition.
