Dysuria refers to pain, burning, or other discomfort experienced when urinating. Dealing with this issue can be extremely frustrating, but the vaginal health experts at vConfidence can help those suffering from it. vConfidence Certified Doctors in Oklahoma City, OK, provide treatment for dysuria.
What is Dysuria?
The term “dysuria” covers a wide range of symptoms experienced when urinating. These symptoms vary from mild discomfort to excruciating pain to burning sensations. Many women have experienced transient dysuria during a urinary tract infection, but a longer-lasting issue with urination may be caused by something else. Often, when estrogen is lowered as it is during menopause or some other conditions, the vagina atrophies, and this can be partially to blame for dysuria. Chemotherapy and radiation treatments can also serve as an underlying cause. In any case, your vConfidence Certified Doctor in Oklahoma City can help you address and treat the underlying cause of dysuria.
How Does vConfidence Treat Dysuria?
If you suffer from recurring dysuria, a vConfidence doctor in Oklahoma City, OK, can help you to discern the cause. If the cause is one that can be helped by a vConfidence treatment, your doctor will work with you to develop a treatment plan. The vConfidence treatment involves using a fractional laser or a regenerating radio frequency to regenerate vaginal tissue. This procedure can help to correct a common cause of dysuria, and it does so in a way that is minimally invasive.
When a vConfidence doctor performs the laser treatment on a patient, a tiny probe is inserted into the vagina. Then, the laser or radio frequency creates a tiny hole in the tissue. The hole is small enough that most patients don’t even feel it being made. The creation of the hole stimulates the growth of new collagen, which regenerates the tissue.
How Many Treatments Are Required?
Unlike many similar treatments, which are spaced out over many months, this vConfidence procedure requires three treatments to be done over a week. Each treatment takes under 10 minutes, so the appointments are not only minimally invasive, but they are also minimally disruptive.
Will There Be Any Downtime?
Many patients worry that they will have to miss work or suffer through painful recuperation periods, but the vConfidence procedure has no downtime involved. You can immediately resume normal activities after each session, and each session is short enough that it is easy to fit into a small window of time during the day.
What Are The Results?
A complete course of treatment, lasting over the course of the week, generally resolves all symptoms. However, you don’t have to wait until the end of the course to start experiencing relief. Many patients report feeling significantly better after the first treatment.
If you are suffering from dysuria, this is something you can quickly resolve. When you consult with an expert at vConfidence in Oklahoma City, OK, you will be well on your way to living pain-free.
