What Is Female Urology?
The Northwestern Medicine Urology Program offers comprehensive and compassionate care for women’s urological conditions, including:
- Fistula, an abnormal hole in the wall of the vagina or other organs
- Incontinence, including overactive bladder
- Interstitial cystitis (painful bladder syndrome)
- Pelvic pain
- Prolapsed (fallen) bladder
- Urethral syndrome
- Urinary tract infections
- Voiding dysfunction
Many women are reluctant to talk to their physicians about these issues, but don’t be embarrassed. These conditions are very common and, in many cases, have a simple resolution.
If left untreated, on the other hand, all of these conditions will continue to impact your quality of life. Some may even be indicative of a more serious condition that should be addressed immediately.
