Abstract

Objective: To study the associated factors for the development of urinary problems in post-menopausal women and the appropriate investigations, management and regular follow up of such cases.
Methods: A total 121 post-menopausal women with urinary symptoms attending the gynaecology OPD as well as in patients were enrolled in the study. These patients were studied and evaluated based on history, clinical examination, investigation and follow up. The data was then subjected to statistical analysis and conclusions were drawn.
RESULTS: Burning micturition was the most common urinary symptom in the present study, seen in 85.12% post-menopausal women followed by urinary frequency (59.50%), urinary incontinence (28.92%), urinary urgency (27.27%) and mass per vaginum (25.61%). Escherichia Coli was the most common organism found in 45 post-menopausal women on urine culture and sensitivity. Local estrogen therapy provided relief of symptoms more than those who did not receive any local estrogen therapy.
Conclusion:  In modern era, a woman spends almost 1/3rd of her life is the in post-menopausal age group. Hence we need to concentrate on the various health aspects of menopause including urinary problems. As shown in this study, most of these problems can be treated medically, though few may require surgical treatment.

Keywords: Menopause, Burning micturition, Incontinence, Estrogen therapy.
