Prior to your First Visit

Prior to your first visit, we will send you a questionnaire and a bladder diary for you to complete before you come to see us.  We ask you to have a urinalysis and a pelvic exam as well.  Please ensure you have fully completed the bladder diary.

What to Expect on Your First Visit

At your first visit, we will review the questionnaire and get a detailed history of your problem and conduct a physical assessment of your pelvic floor muscles and, if applicable, pelvic organ prolapse. 

Together we will develop a treatment plan that will include education, bladder/bowel re-education and training, and pelvic floor muscle re-education.  

Follow-Up Visits

Follow-up visits will include a review of your treatment plan, a reassessment of the pelvic floor muscles, bladder/bowel re-education and training, and home exercise program.  Biofeedback and possible electrical muscle simulation may be offered.
