Urinary Tract Infections
An infection anywhere in the urinary system, including kidneys, ureters, bladder, or urethra. Untreated bladder infections can sometimes travel up into the kidneys and cause severe, even life-threatening infections.
The term means "painful" and actually refers to several pain disorders that affects the female genitals. The most common form of vulvodynia is Vulvar Vestibulitis Syndrome (VVS) and is a group of disorders that affects the tiny glands that lie at the top and bottom of the vaginal opening. These are called "Skenes", "Batholins", and "Vestibular" glands.
Term used to describe a bladder in which uncontrolled detrusor activity (abnormal contractions) is the suspected cause of urinary frequency (including waking to urinary), and/or urge incontinence.
