Urinary incontinence

Urinary incontinence is a common and embarrassing problem that affects many women following childbirth, or going through the change. This is sometimes referred to as a 'weak bladder' or 'urine leaking'. Although many women suffer in silence, expert help is now available in relaxed comfortable surroundings at Pinehill. Initial treatments of urinary incontinence include pelvic floor physiotherapy, reduction of caffeinated drinks and bladder retraining. Read more on urinary incontinence.

Vaginal prolapse

Vaginal prolapse is a common condition that affects many women following childbirth and can have a significant impact on the patient’s quality of life. Many patients feel embarrassed about the prolapse and probably are not aware that modern minimally invasive treatments exist for this common condition. Read more on vaginal prolapse.

Excessive menstrual bleeding

Many women suffer with increased menstrual blood loss which can also be associated with painful menstruation. This can affect ladies at any age, and could have a significant impact on quality of life. Read more on menstrual bleeding.

Pelvic Pain and endometriosis

Endometriosis is a condition where part of the lining of the womb (endometrium) migrates into other sites in the pelvis (eg behind the uterus, underneath the ovaries, over the surface of the bowel etc.). Because this tissue is sensitive to the female hormones produced from the ovaries, it undergoes similar cyclical changes to the lining of the womb. Read more on pelvic pain.
