bladder problems

Stress incontinence

According to statistics, one in three women who have ever had a baby will have this problem. But it can happen to anyone, young or old, if pelvic floor is weak. It is the problem of bladder leakage with exercise, coughing, sneezing, moving suddenly, lifting etc. It can be very mild but may progress to a severe loss requiring pad use.

Overactive bladder dry or wet

This is the problem of frequency and urgency which may lead to bladder leakage. Overactive bladder dry is a bladder that doesn’t leak, but it just makes you go far too often. Lots of people tell is they think they have a weak bladder. The bladder is not weak, it just doesn’t like holding fluid for long! Overactive bladder wet is the same as urgency incontinence. It is the problem of leakage associated with a strong desire to pass urine which is almost impossible to put off. You may find yourself rushing to the toilet but you won’t make it in time and bladder leakage occurs on the way.

Nocturia or bladder frequency at night

Many people are driven mad by their bladder waking them at night. We will help you to understand why this is happening and help you to guide your bladder back towards how it should be: a bladder that doesn’t wake you until the morning.

Difficulty emptying bladder

You may feel that you don’t empty your bladder properly. You may just need to go often and need to go again too soon after emptying. We can help find out what’s going on with the use of our ultrasound in rooms. We measure what’s inside, you empty your bladder, and then we measure again. Your bladder should be empty. G.Ps can order formal ultrasound studies.
