What are Urinary Disorders?
Women can experience symptoms of a urinary disorder at any stage of their lives. Most urinary disorders are very distressing on the bladder and can cause painful episodes, urinary leakage, and recurrent urinary tract infections. Our board-certified gynecologist, Dr. Otto Huertas, is accepting new patients at CosmeticGyn Center in Dallas, TX for evaluation and treatment of urinary disorders. Left untreated, a urinary disorder could damage your bladder, pelvic floor, urinary tract, and more. Dr. Huertas can help you find out why you are experiencing any of the following symptoms (alone or in combination):
- Loss of urinary control (incontinence)
- Burning urination
- Pelvic pain or pressure
- Bladder or urinary tract infections
- Undiagnosed disease or cancer in or around the bladder
- Weakened pelvic floor muscles
- Pelvic floor prolapses
Some of the causes of urinary disorders include age, weight, diet, lifestyle, medical and family history, medications, hormonal imbalances, and more. We recommend that you schedule an appointment to meet with Dr. Huertas in our office in Dallas, TX. CosmeticGyn Center has some of the leading gynecologic and feminine health professionals in the DFW area. Meet privately with Dr. Huertas to begin your diagnostic journey to better health today.

Other Suggestions for Urinary Disorders
While we examine and evaluate you for certain urinary disorders, there are many ways you can reduce the severity of your symptoms. It's important to eat a healthy diet, and you should especially avoid foods or beverages that inflame your bladder. Weight loss or maintaining a healthy weight can alleviate extra pressure placed on the bladder, which often translates into less pain. Keeping track of how much you drink and when can deter frequent bathroom breaks or waking up in the middle of the night to urinate. Scheduling your restroom breaks throughout your day and sticking to that plan can take the urgency out of your need to urinate. We also recommend that you find incontinence pads or adult diapers to keep you feeling confident and to avoid embarrassing accidents.
