085: What on earth is a urogynecologist?

Urogynecologists specialize in urology and obstetrics and gynecology, so they are uniquely equipped to listen and work with you to find a solution. Pregnancy and childbirth, menopause, and even straining to lift something heavy are some of the primary reasons we experience pelvic floor disorders and decide to see a urogynecologist. Dr. Susan Oakley, a board-certified Urogynecologist at St. Elizabeth, and Holly, will go over these questions:

• Why do I pee when I laugh?
• Why is my poop leaking?
• What is vaginal prolapse?
• Why do I leak after I’ve already peed?
• Do I need pelvic reconstruction?
• Why does it hurt when I have sex?
