The Modern Woman providers understand the anxiety and social impairment that results from incontinence. We offer expertise in determining the underlying causes of incontinence and finding the best treatment for each individual to help women find relief from this crippling condition.
Urinary incontinence is common and embarrassing condition affecting millions of women of all ages. Women who lack the ability to hold back urine often live in constant fear of public humiliation, resulting in the avoidance of activities of both personal enjoyment and professional duties. Urine loss can also occur during sexual activity, adding extra emotional distress and complicating personal relationships.
Menopause marks the stage of a woman’s life when her body has transitioned from regularly producing estrogen and progesterone in the ovaries to its post-menopausal state. This process occurs naturally in women typically between the ages of 40 and 60, but there are natural causes and voluntary procedures that can induce menopause before the age of 40 (premature menopause). Symptoms of menopause include hot flashes, irregular periods, sleep difficulties, night sweats, mood swings and irritability as your body adjusts to new hormone levels. Our physicians and nurse midwives carry decades of experience providing professional, compassionate treatment and advice to women going through menopause, and it brings our practice great satisfaction to help ease the emotional and physical discomfort that comes with it.
