GENITOURINARY DISORDER

Genitourinary disorders are illnesses that occur when the urinary organs and genital organs are not functioning properly. These disorders may be the result of aging, illness, or injury.

There are many organs involved in urination, including two kidneys, two ureters, the bladder, two sphincter muscles, and the urethra.

The urinary system are also known as renal system. The kidneys make urine by filtering wastes and extra water from blood. Urine travels from the kidneys through two thin tubes called URETER and fills the bladder. When the bladder is full, a person urinates through the urethra to eliminate the waste. Examples of genitourinary disorders include-cystitis, Neurogenic bladder, kidney stones, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), prolapsed UTERUS, urinary incontinence, and urinary tract infection (UTI) etc. In addition to causing urinary problems, many of these conditions may also affect the reproductive organs including the uterus, cervix, fallopian tubes, and vagina in women and the testicle,epididymis (tubular organ where sperm collect after leaving the testis),prostate gland and penis in males.

Treatment of genitourinary disorders depends on the specific type and severity of the disorder.

If patients have genitourinary disorders with respective symptom should visit their vaidya/docter as soon as possible.
