Women's Health Q&A

What is women’s health?

Women’s health is an area of medicine that focuses on the health and well-being of women. A woman's anatomy and life stages, including pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause, increase her risk of developing problems that affect her urinary tract.

The urinary tract is a complex system. It includes the urethra, bladder, ureters, and kidneys. San Fernando Valley Urological Associates is a full-service, state-of-the-art urology practice specializing in diagnosing and treating women’s health problems that affect the urinary tract.
