  4. Recurrent urinary tract infection
  5. Pelvic organ prolapse (mass protruding out from the vagina)
  6. Nocturia
  7. Other urinary problems: bed wetting, blood in urine

At the Hong Kong Urology Clinic, the following tests may be required after your consultation with the urologists.

  1. Urinalysis: to look for presence of protein, sugar, blood and white blood cells in the urine.
  2. Urine for culture and sensitivity: to look for organism that causes infection of the urinary tract.
  3. Pad test: to confirm any leakage and to quantify the amount of urine loss.
  4. Flow rate study: patient is asked to pass urine on a container and the speed of the urine flow will be measured.
  5. Ultrasound scan of the kidneys and bladder: to assess any abnormality in the kidneys and bladder and also to measure the residual urine in the bladder after micturition.
  6. Urodynamic Study: to assess the storage capacity of the bladder and also to delineate the cause of incontinence. During the study, two fine tubes are inserted into the bladder-one for filling the bladder and one for recording the bladder pressure. A third tube is inserted into the rectum to record the abdominal pressure.
