Urogynecologists are trained urologists and/or gynecologists that are specialized in the treatment of female patients who have pelvic floor dysfunction, pelvic organ prolapse, urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence or other types of gynecologic or urologic problems. Often times, patients with pelvic organ prolapse (in which the bladder is prolapsing into the vagina or the rectum is prolapsing into the vagina or the uterus is prolapsing into the vagina) can have a significant amount of pain in their pelvis and groin area. Sometimes their pain can radiate to their hip. The most common cause of groin and hip pain is usually musculoskeletal and/or low back problems. If this has been ruled out and your physician is at a loss for the etiology of your groin and hip pain, it would be a good idea to seek a urogynecologist's help especially if you are having other symptoms such as problems with bowel movements or problems with emptying your bladder or urinary/fecal incontinence.

How are women affected by the pressure to conceive?
Good In Bed answeredNo matter how excited a woman is about the prospect of being pregnant, she can experience just as many sexual roadblocks as her male partner. Sex on demand can be tricky for her -- even if she’s the one doing the demanding. For example, it’s easy for women to get in the goal-oriented, baby-making mindset, where sex is simply a means to an ends. That can mean that she may not even be in the mood when she initiates sex, but is guided instead by ovulation. Yet a lack of desire can lead to additional problems, like decreased lubrication and difficulty climaxing. It’s important to devote the same amount of attention to foreplay and arousal when trying to conceive that you normally would.
What is spontaneous nipple discharge?
Spontaneous nipple discharge is when fluid comes out of the nipple on its own. This means a person has not squeezed or pressed on a nipple or breast to force out the fluid.
Spontaneous nipple discharge is often noticed as a stain on a bra or clothing. Sometimes a person can see this discharge after taking a shower.
Fluid that comes out only when the nipple or breast is squeezed or pressed is different from a spontaneous discharge.
