Did You Know Urology Is Not Just For Men?


That’s right, Urologists regularly treat women and children too! While this may sound obvious, it’s a common misconception that men see Urologists and women stick to their Gynecologists. However, there are many conditions, some even specific to women, that a Urologist is well-versed in handling. In fact, Bond Clinic’s own Dr. Romero is fellowship trained in Female Urology. Female Urology issues can begin in the high school or college years and follow a women into her child-bearing and post-menopause years. Some of the most frequent female Urology issues include:

  • Urinary incontinence – including urge, stress, overflow, functional, and mixed incontinence
  • Overactive bladder (OAB)
  • Urinary frequency
  • Urinary urgency
  • Urinary tract infections (UTI)
  • Interstitial Cystitis (IC) or chronic pelvic pain
  • Hematuria – blood in the urine
  • Nocturia – frequent trips to the bathroom during the night
