The urogynecologist is the doctor responsible for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of problems related to the uterus, rectum, intestines, bladder, and pelvic floor of women, such as:

  • Urinary or fecal incontinence (involuntary loss of urine or feces);
  • Genital prolapse, known as “dropped bladder,” which causes pelvic region pain as the main symptom;
  • Vaginal laxity;
  • Recurrent urinary infections;
  • Vulvodynia, chronic pain or discomfort in the vaginal opening;
  • Vaginal dryness (genitourinary syndrome of menopause).

Regularly visiting a urogynecologist is the best way to prevent disorders related to the pelvic floor and urinary system.
