Urologic Dysfunction After Menopause Topic Guide
Urologic Dysfunction After Menopause: Urologic conditions that can occur around the time a woman goes through menopause include bladder control problems, bladder prolapse (descent of the bladder into the vagina), and urinary tract infections. Diagnosis of urologic problems may include urinalysis, microscopy of the urine, and urine culture. Treatment may include behavioral modification, medication, and surgery.
Prolapsed Bladder Bladder prolapse is the name of a condition in which a woman's bladder descends into the vagina, usually resulting from the stress of child birth or other bodily harm to the pelvis. Urinary difficulties, discomfort, and stress incontinence (urine leakage caused by sneezing, coughing, exertion, etc) can result from a prolapsed bladder.
