If you struggle with frequent UTIs that can lead to dysuria (painful urination) vConfidence Certified Doctors in Long Island, NY offer a dysuria treatment that can treat your symptoms and cure the underlying cause.
What is Dysuria?
Dysuria is pain during urination. It can be experienced by pain, discomfort, or burning and is more common in women than men.
What Causes Dysuria?
There are many different causes of dysuria. One of the leading causes of dysuria is urinary tract infections (UTIs). However, any part of the urinary tract can become infected and cause dysuria: kidney infection, ureters (tubes connecting kidneys to bladder) infection, bladder infection, and urethral infection. Women are more likely than men to get UTIs and people with diabetes and older people have a higher risk of getting a UTI and experiencing dysuria. Other risk factors of UTIs that lead to dysuria are people with an enlarged prostate, kidney stones, pregnancy, or having a catheter.
Dysuria can also be caused by vaginal infections, such as a yeast infection. Other causes include sexually transmitted disease like genital herpes, chlamydia, and gonorrhea.
Inflammation and irritation in the urinary tract can also lead to dysuria. Infections are the largest cause of inflammation and irritation in the urinary tract, but other causes include: stones in urinary tract, irritation from sexual activity, interstitial cystitis, menopause, horseback riding, bicycling, and sensitivities to scented soaps, douches, side effects from medication, and tumors in the urinary tract.
Treatment for Dysuria
Because there are many causes for dysuria, doctors tend to treat the underlying causes of dysuria rather than the symptom itself.
However, vConfidence has a revolutionary treatment that can relieve the symptoms of dysuria and treat the most common underlying cause, UTIs. They use a tissue regenerating radio frequency or fractional CO2 lasers to create tiny pinholes in the vaginal canal. The pinhole is so small that patients experience no pain. The hole stimulates the vagina to repair itself, creating healthy tissues and boosting the production of collagen.
This procedure is non-invasive and requires no downtime or surgery. With a network of vConfidence Certified Doctors, you can find doctors in Long Island, Queens, Brooklyn, Hempstead, and Huntington, NY to perform the treatment.
