This week on MD for Moms, I interview Dr Kara Watts, a NYC-based urologist about common issues women face but too often keep to themselves rather than seek help for, such as overactive bladder and recurrent UTIs. If you are like many other women, you have considered the utility of being a camel during long car rides as it feels like every sip of water leads to an uncomfortable need to urinate. Perhaps you are one of the many who have frequent UTIs, where you have become buddies with your local pharmacist as a result of all the antibiotics required. Maybe you have had to endure kidney stones and the pain associated with them – some say it’s worse than childbirth! Any way you cut it, urinary issues are common and we explore the many ways that a urologist can help if you are suffering.
