In certain cases Dr Young will recommend undertaking a test called urodynamics studies to further evaluate and treat your incontinence.

Urodynamics may also be indicated prior to undertaking prolapse surgery, depending on your situation. She will perform this test for you in her rooms.

Prior to the test you will be asked to complete a bladder diary. It is important you stop any bladder mediations (eg Ditropan, Solifenacin, Oxytrol, Betmiga) two weeks prior to your urodynamics appointment unless otherwise advised.

The test is performed whilst awake. Initially you will be asked to empty your bladder into a special toilet which measures how quickly the urine comes out, so please come to your appointment with a comfortably full bladder. Following this we place small catheter tubes into the bladder and either the vagina or rectum. These remain in place whilst your bladder is slowly filled with water. You will then be asked a series of questions to evaluate your bladder function before emptying your bladder again, this time with the small tubes in place. Images are also collected using a 3D ultrasound machine. In some cases (eg prolapse) the test is performed with a pessary device placed in the vagina. This test is usually well tolerated and should not be painful.

There is a small risk of developing a urinary tract infection following the test so please drink lots of water afterwards. If there is a high risk for developing an infection, you will be given an antibiotic.
