Female urine problems are common and can happen by chance or be a sign of an underlying illness. We often examine to see if there are signs of a bladder that is not emptying well or a kidney blockage.

Urine infections

Though the initial treatment with antibiotics may resolve a problem it may also be necessary to do further tests to prevent problems recurring. This is a very common problem in women of all ages and even if antibiotic courses are not settling infections down then detection and treatment of underlying diagnoses may resolve the situation.

Urine leakage

Female urine leakage is a common symptom for women and requires an accurate diagnosis but can then often be resolved without invasive surgery.  It is often possible to offer tablet treatment and/or physiotherapy as treatments for urine leakage once a diagnosis has been made.
