TRIAL TO PASS URINE WITHOUT CATHETER:
This service is provided for anyone with inserted urinary catheter due to urinary retention. The catheter will be extracted, you will be given time to drink and urinate. Then the bladder volume will be calculated to see if your bladder is empty. If your bladder volume is above the recommended level, or if you were unable to urinate, a new catheter will be placed.
Urogynecology or Female Urology speciality treats stress urinary incontinence, overactive bladder, Interstitial Cystitis, and Pelvic organ prolapse.
300 Millions people are affected by incontinence worldwide. 4 in 10 of women aged 65 or more have it. There are several types of incontinence. Most common types are stress incontinence, urge incontinence, and mixed incontinence.
In our clinic you will be asked about your medical history, you will fill questionnaires, your incontinence will be assessed by performing 'stress test' and other tests, your urinary bladder will be scanned, and urine will be tested to rule out infection. Sometimes we have to do a test to exclude urethral narrowing or scarring.
There are different options to treat incontinence and overactive bladder like life-style changes, pelvic floor exercises, pessaries, self-catheterisation, using pads, and medications. If your condition requires more investigations like Cystoscopy ( examination of your bladder with a camera ), Urodynamics (measuring your bladder pressure), or surgery, you will be referred to a hospital (Public/Private).
