STI Screening

A sexually transmitted infection (STI) is an infection that can be passed from person to person when having unprotected sex. You can get an STI by having vaginal sex, anal sex, or oral sex. Many people with sexually transmitted infections (STIs) don’t get symptoms; therefore it is important to get tested if you have unprotected sex even if you do not have any symptoms. The earlier you’re tested; the sooner treatment can be given if it’s needed.

The commonest STIs in the UK are anogenital warts, Chlamydia, genital herpes, gonorrhea, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), hepatitis B, hepatitis C, pubic lice, syphilis, and trichomonas. STIs can pass between men and women and from women to women and men to men.

Pelvic Floor Aging and Repair

The Pelvic floor is the forgotten part of a woman’s body, which results in problems in a significant number of women and sometimes men too. These symptoms are best referred to as pelvic floor dysfunction. Pelvic floor dysfunction includes:

  • Pain
  • Bowel problems
  • Urine Problems
  • Sexual dissatisfaction

Pelvic Dysfunction Treatment Glasgow

The extreme form of pelvic dysfunction will present itself with Prolapse this can be womb prolapse, Vaginal walls prolapse or rectal prolapse. Our aim is to interfere at the early stages to stop the prolapse stages from happening.

Pelvic floor dysfunction can be present in women and men. Women are more sensitive to pelvic floor dysfunction for the following reasons:

  • The presence of the birth canal (vagina)
  • Pregnancy increases pressure on the pelvis
  • Delivery will result in stretching the pelvic floor muscles and sometimes tears (visible or not)

  • Pelvic Pain
  • Pain during opening bowel
  • Pain during passing water
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Genital area pain
  • Tail bone pain

  • Urine frequency
  • Waking up to go to the toilet at night
  • Stress incontinence
  • Overflow incontinence

Urinary Problems

  • Urine frequency
  • Waking up to go to the toilet at night
  • Stress incontinence
  • Overflow incontinence

Sexual Dissatisfaction

This usually happens as a combination of the effect of hormone depletion on vagina external genitalia in addition to pelvic floor dysfunction. Atrophy of the external genitalia and vagina with lack of muscle power in the pelvic floor will result in:

  • Dryness
  • Painful intercourse
  • A possible episode of non-intentional incontinence
  • All the above will result in stress and anxiety around sex and inevitably lack of libido

Bowel Problems

Pelvic dysfunction can often cause problems with your bowel and the following issues may arise:

 

  • The feeling of incomplete emptiness
  • Difficulty opening bowel
  • The need to open bowel frequently
  • Constipation

Bowel Problems

It is a combination of physical trauma during pregnancy and childbirth adding to it the natural aging process.

The aging process will result in gradual atrophy, significantly reduced thickness of external genitalia and vagina with significant reduction of function glands in the vaginal wall. Another factor to bear in mind the reduction of muscle mass in the pelvic floor which will compound all these factors.

How can your pelvic floor be rejuvenated?

Pelvic floor dysfunction is a very treatable condition, usually through the use of biofeedback and physical therapy. Seeing your physician if you have any symptoms of pelvic floor dysfunction can provide treatment for this often-debilitating condition and improve your quality of life.

  • Biofeedback This is a non-painful non-surgical technique that can treat almost 75% of all pelvic floor dysfunction
  • Medications: prescribed muscle relaxant or some time topical hormones to improve the health of the vagina
  • Laser resurfacing of the vaginal lining by using state of the art CO2 fractional laser which can also be used to rejuvenate the vulva
  • Relaxation therapy: could in simple relaxation session, yoga, neurolinguistics practice
  • Surgery: once the stage of prolapsed one of the options will be surgical, but as I mentioned earlier an early intervention better than later intervention. Surgical approaches have its downsides.
