Urologic Dysfunction After Menopause Follow-up
Urinary tract infection
Completing the entire course of antibiotics prescribed by the doctor is extremely important, even if the woman feels better. A woman may also be asked to return to the doctor for a follow-up urinalysis. If a woman experiences a return of symptoms or new symptoms, she should call her health care professional immediately. These symptoms include fever or pain with urination continuing 2 days after antibiotic treatment; inability to keep medication down or severe side effects of medication; nausea or vomiting related to foods, fluid, or medication; flank pain, shaking chills, or high fever related to kidney involvement; or worsening of any symptoms after 2 days of antibiotic treatment.
Bladder control problems/bladder prolapse
Keep follow-up appointments with the doctor and continue seeking medical care if a first approach does not work. Women may need to see a specialist such as a urogynecologist.
