Voiding Difficulty

Voiding Difficulty

American Hospital's Department of Urology and Gynecology provides care for a broad range of neurologic and non-neurologic voiding dysfunction disorders.

About Voiding Difficulty:

Voiding difficulty is described as the ‘abnormalities in the filling, storing, and emptying of urine’. It refers to a condition in which there is a lack of coordination between the bladder muscle (detrusor) and the urethra. Incontinence & voiding dysfunction can occur in people of both sexes and can affect children as well. Voiding dysfunction may also cause physical, social, or mental harm to children. Without proper knowledge of symptoms, treatments and preventative measures, many parents fail to realize the abnormality of their children’s urinary frequencies.

Who to Consult For a Voiding Dysfunction?

Usually, a General Physician (GP) is enough to correctly diagnose and prescribe medication for a voiding dysfunction. However, in some cases, where the GP does not have enough expertise, it is delegated to a urologist or a gynaecologist (depending on case to case and severity). A gynaecologist is someone who provides consultancy and treats issues related to female genitalia while a urologist is a professional who specialises in the treatment of urinary system function and diseases.

Our hospital has recruited some of the best doctors nationwide and with their high qualifications and field extensive knowledge, they are sure to make your problems urinary inconsistency problems go away.

Common Voiding Dysfunctions:

As of now, no one is sure what causes voiding dysfunction. Studies have found the likelihood of women having voiding dysfunction is higher than men. It can, however, be diagnosed quickly if the patient notices the following symptoms and decides to consult a doctor.

• Difficulties emptying the bladder
• Urinary hesitation
• A slow or weak urine stream
• Urinary urgency
• High urinary frequency
• Urinary dribbling

Another symptom that is accompanied by voiding dysfunctions is constipation, which is often overlooked.

Voiding Difficulty Treatment Options:

All types of voiding dysfunction can be effectively treated with medication, bladder "training," or both, depending on the kind of voiding disorder.

1. An overactive bladder for children can be addressed by establishing a routine for the kid to use the toilet every few hours while awake. To assist in retraining the bladder, children are urged to pee before a sensation of urgency arises. Physicians may give medicines to assist in lessening the frequency and sensation of urgency after a few months on the voiding regimen.
2. A vast majority of Voiding Dysfunction disorder therapies focus on retraining the brain and assisting the bladder in relaxing. These therapies focus on teaching that regular urinating involves relaxing muscles in the pelvis and bladder rather than tightening abdominal muscles.
3. The most common treatment for an overactive bladder is behavioural therapy. Children are placed on a bathroom schedule that requires them to go whether or not they have the desire to urinate. Bladder-relaxing medications may also be beneficial. Short-term catheterization may be required for patients with a big bladder but who are unable to pee.
4. TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) is also beneficial in some cases where therapies prove of not much use.
