Female Urology — Conditions

The pelvic floor is a medical term used to describe the muscles, ligaments, and connective tissue that provide support for internal organs, which in women consist of the bowel, bladder, uterus, vagina, and rectum. The female pelvic floor is designed to prevent these organs from falling down or out, as well as help these organs function properly. Millions of women in the United States alone suffer from pelvic floor problems. Many of those who seek treatment from medical centers like Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona are able to live a better quality of life.

The Urologists at Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona specialize in the field of urogynecology, or the diagnosis and treatment of female pelvic floor conditions. The type of female urological problems we see at Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona can range from enlarged clitoral tissue and vaginal prolapse (weakened vaginal walls or tissue descending from the vaginal opening) to kidney stones and urinary incontinence (urine leakage). Some women who experience these and other pelvic floor problems feel uncomfortable talking about their condition or reviewing symptoms with their healthcare provider. The urologic specialists at Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona understand that initiating the conversation can be difficult. Together, the Urologists and medical staff strive to create a comfortable environment where we are able to make a sensitive topic a little easier to discuss.

Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona treats patients living in and around Phoenix, Arizona who have the following female urological problems:


  • Bladder and Vaginal – At Academic Urology & Urogynecology of Arizona, we know that it can be difficult to talk about your bladder control and/or vaginal problems, but we encourage you to seek help if you experience any one (or a combination) of the following symptoms: urine leakage; frequent need to urinate; frequent bladder, urinary tract, or vaginal infections; inability to pass urine or empty your bladder completely; pressure in the vagina or pelvis; progressively weaker urine stream; pelvic or lower abdominal pain; and/or pain or bleeding with sexual intercourse.
  • Overactive Bladder (OAB) – is an extremely common condition characterized by urinating more than 8 times a day. OAB is a normal part of aging and is treatable.


  • Aesthetic Conditions – If you have a difficult time reaching sexual climax, suffer from sexual dysfunction, experience pain during intercourse, or feel vaginal discomfort during everyday activities or when wearing tight-fitting clothing, then Arizona Urology may be able to help.
  • Kidney and Urethral – The urinary system includes two kidneys, two ureters, the bladder, two sphincter muscles, and the urethra. Waste products from the blood are filtered by the kidneys and added to urine that the kidneys produce where they are dissolved and moved with the urine to the ureters, which are tubes that connect the kidney to the bladder.

Conditions, such as an overactive bladder or voiding dysfunction can have a major impact on just about every aspect of your life, causing you to avoid vacations and other special events out of the fear that your condition will trigger at the wrong time and embarrass you. Whereas conditions, such as a large labia or loose/relaxed vaginal muscles can cause diminished sexual gratification, sexual suppression, and a lack of self-esteem in your appearance.
