- Urodynamic bladder testing: a series of tests that gives your doctor a detailed look at how well your bladder and urethra are storing and releasing urine.
- Bladder prolapse/cystoceles: Occurs in women when the bladder is no longer supported by pelvic floor muscles or tissue and descends into the vagina.
- Bowel incontinence: Occurs when the muscle that controls a bowel movement is too weak and allows leakage of stool.
- Chronic pelvic pain: Pain below a woman’s belly button and in between the hips that has lasted for six months or longer.
- Interstitial cystitis/painful bladder syndrome: Chronic bladder condition. It's often mistaken for a urinary tract infection (UTI), but there is no infection. Symptoms include bladder and pelvic pain or pressure and a frequent urge to urinate.
- Pelvic organ prolapse: Occurs when the vagina and/or uterus have dropped from their normal position in the pelvis.
- Urinary incontinence and stress urinary incontinence: Conditions involving loss of bladder control. The severity ranges from occasionally leaking urine when coughing or sneezing to having an urge to urinate that's so sudden and strong you don't get to a toilet in time.
