In addition to treating women in need of gynecological or obstetric care, Dr. Taryll Jenkins of Jenkins Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Medicine in Katy, TX also provides treatments for many conditions typically treated by urological services. With a commitment to the health and overall wellness of women in the region, Dr. Jenkins seeks to provide excellent care for many female conditions by one trusted provider in one convenient location.
The following are several common urology conditions for which Dr. Jenkins can help patients find relief:
The frequent urge to urinate or accidental urination are common issues among adult women. Many patients think these symptoms are simply part of getting older or having children and they are hesitant to raise the issue with their physician. However, having the conversation with their physician can help patients find relief from treatable conditions.
Similarly, frequently getting out of bed throughout the night to urinate is often caused by more than simply drinking too much water, tea, or other fluids during the evening. Dr. Jenkins can perform an exam to determine if there is an underlying cause or condition and offer a number of therapies or treatments in order to bring you a restful night of sleep.
Urinary tract or bladder infections:
Many women can feel a bladder or urinary tract infection almost immediately. The telltale burning and intense urge to urinate are red flags for many women who have previously been diagnosed with the condition. Dr. Jenkins can quickly perform the necessary tests and prescribe an antibiotic to help your body kick the infection. Further, if the infection is flaring up frequently, he can perform additional testing to determine if there is an underlying medical cause.
Pelvic organ prolapse:
Occasionally, a woman’s pelvic muscles will weaken significantly which can cause organs in the pelvic region to begin to prolapse, or slip out of place. This condition can be embarrassing for many women and often they try to live with the condition. However, there are several surgical and non-surgical treatments that can provide relief and allow women to live happy and healthy lifestyles.
