What is Pelvic Floor Dysfunction?
Urogynaecology or Pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD) is basically a field of Gynaecology which focuses on pelvic floor disorders such as incontinence (unintentional leakage of urine or faeces) and prolapse of the vagina, bladder and or uterus. The latter presents as an uncomfortable awareness of a vaginal bulge/lump, pelvic pressure of dragging sensation/backache. Both these conditions are common in women when the natural support system is weakened either with childbirth or chronic straining or excessive weight gain.
Urinary incontinence is a reasonably common and over half of women over the age of 65 may be symptomatic for accidental leakage of urine. Prolapse and incontinence can frequently co-exist and women may be symptomatic for both.
Women with these symptoms can be successfully treated by either non-surgical or surgical treatments depending on their choice.
How are Urogynaecologists different from Gynaecologists?
Urogynaecologists are subspecialists who have done additional training in this field and are able to provide a skilled approach to clinical assessment of pelvic floor disorders and offer effective conservative or Non-surgical (e.g. physiotherapy, medications or pessaries) as well as surgical treatments for Pelvic Floor Dysfunction. Most subspecialists like
