Pelvic Organ Prolapse

Pelvic organ prolapse is bulging of one or more of the pelvic organs into the vagina. These organs are the uterus, vagina, bowel, and bladder.

Symptoms may include:

  • A sensation of a bulge or something coming down or out of the vagina, which sometimes needs to be pushed back.
  • Discomfort during sex.
  • Problems passing urine such as slow stream, a feeling of not emptying the bladder fully, needing to urinate more often, and leaking a small amount of urine when you cough, sneeze or exercise.

Miss Srikrishna has extensive experience in all aspects of managing this condition. She is able to offer specialist investigation as well as non-surgical and surgical management of prolapse. She has close links with specialist women’s physiotherapists and pessary services as she strongly believes in avoiding surgery wherever possible. However, where required, she is able to provide expert surgical management to cover all aspects of pelvic organ prolapse.

Recurrent UTI (Cystitis)

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are common infections that can affect the bladder, the kidneys and the tubes connected to them.

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) are common infections that can affect the bladder, the kidneys and the tubes connected to them. Anyone can get them, but they are particularly common in women. Some women experience them regularly (called recurrent UTIs). Sometimes these infections are caused / worsened by sexual intercourse.

Miss Srikrishna has a lot of experience in the diagnosis and treatment of these recurrent infections. She is able to offer practical advice and lifestyle-related, non-medical tips to reduce these as well as state-of-the-art, comprehensive investigations and a range of treatment options to treat this debilitating condition.

Dyspareunia (Painful Intercourse)

Painful intercourse or dyspareunia is a common complaint among women, especially women approaching menopause

Painful intercourse (or dyspareunia) is a common complaint among women, especially women approaching menopause and those whose periods have already ended. Most problems are associated with hormonal fluctuations, but other factors also play a role. Today, there are many treatments available to relieve painful dyspareunia symptoms. Pain during intercourse is not “normal.”

Sushma is aware that many of these problems can have huge effects on a woman’s quality of life, and are often very embarrassing to talk about. At her weekly clinic, women are encouraged to discuss their problems in a supportive and sensitive way.

Genito-urinary syndrome of menopause and related problems

Genito-urinary syndrome of menopause and related problems

Vaginal dryness and burning with cystitis-like symptoms is a common “side effect” of aging, often caused by hormonal changes associated with menopause. Sometimes, though, vaginal dryness occurs in younger women or from other causes. Dryness contributes to symptoms like pain or burning sensations, and can also increase the risk of developing infections. Fortunately, plenty of treatment options are available.

Sushma Srikrishna has considerable experience diagnosing the underlying cause of vaginal dryness and providing patient-centred solutions.
