Types of Gynecological Disorders We Treat
At UPMC Susquehanna, we want you to always feel your best. If a gynecological disease is interfering with your daily life, we’re here to help you. Our team of healthcare providers have years of experience treating a wide variety of gynecological disorders that affect women of all ages.
Endometriosis is a painful condition in which the tissue that normally outlines the inside of the uterus is found on the outside of the uterus. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), about 5 million women in the U.S. suffer from endometriosis.
Pelvic pain is experienced in the lowest part of the pelvis and abdomen. Organs in the pelvis include the bowel, bladder, uterus and ovaries.
Fibroids are tumors that grow inside the uterus. Although these tumors are usually noncancerous, they can cause unpleasant symptoms like heavy bleeding and pain during sex. About 20 to 80 percent of women develop fibroids before they reach age 50.
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an infection that occurs in a woman’s reproductive organs. PIDs are commonly caused by sexually transmitted disease (STD), like chlamydia or gonorrhea, although that is not always the case.
When there’s a problem with a person’s bladder-storage function that leads to a sudden and oftentimes uncontrollable urge to urinate, it’s called an overactive bladder. This condition can also lead to frequent urges to urinate, causing a person to go to the bathroom eight times or more within 24 hours.
Menopause is a natural occurrence in women aged 40 to 50. It typically occurs 12 months after a woman’s last period and signifies the end of a woman’s menstrual cycle and fertility.
