3 Gynecological Problems You Can’t Ignore

Lots of women tend to put their health on the backburner. They’re so engrossed in everyone else’s needs that they ignore their own. However, if you’re dealing with any of these 3 gynecological issues, you can’t afford to ignore them any longer:

1. Incontinence

Those witty adult diaper commercials can make incontinence problems seem like a joke, but they are anything but! Even mild incontinence — like when you laugh or sneeze — can signal a bladder prolapse. If that’s the problem, it means that your pelvic muscles have weakened and your bladder has sunk down into your vagina. The longer you ignore the problem, the worse it will get.

Only a trusted surgeon can fix a bladder prolapse. To do it, he’ll need to insert a small mesh or sling that can give your bladder a boost. The sling will do what your muscles no longer can.

2. An increase in abdominal pressure

Think that strain in your abdomen is “nothing”? It may not be. In fact, it may be a sign of a cystocele — another name for a bladder prolapse. Many women think that they can’t possibly have a cystocele because they’re not dealing with any kind of incontinence issues. However, a new pain, pressure, or strain can be a sign that something is wrong. It’s better to be safe than sorry!

And, oftentimes, women will notice that their “minor” abdominal pain is also accompanied by changes in bowel habits or occurs after they’ve given birth — all more evidence that a cystocele is to blame.

3. Cosmetic issues due to aging, childbirth, or injury

You might think that wanting to look good “down there” is silly. However, feeling embarrassed by the way you look — especially if it’s due to a certain change, like aging, giving birth, or an injury — can lead to self-confidence problems and even sexual problems. If you don’t feel comfortable being naked in front of your partner, it can even lead to a lack of intimacy in your relationship. That’s why cosmetic issues have to be taken just as seriously as medical ones!

Luckily, a labia reduction can completely change the way you look and feel. During labia reduction surgery, your doctor can sculpt your labia so that they meet your exact specifications. It’s just like any other type of cosmetic surgery. In fact, you can even bring in a picture for him to model you after!
