Being empowered to confront your health issues and to improve your life is nothing to feel embarrassed about.
PENSACOLA, Fla. (PRWEB) December 12, 2017
Changing one patient’s life changed the career of Dr. Jessica Rogers.
Dr. Rogers is the only Fellowship trained Urogynecologist Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgeon in the Region. We are happy to announce that she joined the Coyle Institute in Pensacola in 2017.
Dr. Rogers said she initially focused on a more traditional gynecological field, but one patient’s experience became a game changer.
“She had been living with urinary incontinence for years,” Dr. Rogers said. “She was afraid to leave her house, to go shopping, to go out to eat, in fear that something would happen and she would have to change her clothes.”
After having her incontinence addressed holistically as both a gynecological and urological issue, the patient returned to Dr. Rogers and thanked her for completely changing her life.
“That’s when I knew that I wanted to help women who were facing these types of issues that are keeping them from living a full life,” Dr. Rogers said.
Sadly, in her vast experience, Dr. Rogers said it’s not uncommon for women to silently cope with issues such as incontinence for years.
“They may feel embarrassed, and they often wrongly believe it’s just a normal part of aging,” she said. “For some, there is a fear of surgery, and they would rather just endure the problem.”
For many women there are now non-surgical options that can do a great deal to alleviate both urinary and fecal incontinence, said Dr. Rogers.
One such easy outpatient procedure is the new diVa Laser Vaginal Therapy. The painless, high-tech procedure improves vaginal health in women who are facing dryness, loss of muscle tone or painful intercourse. diVa also improves minor urinary incontinence issues and other pelvic health issues, such as vaginal prolapse. The simple, effective procedure takes only a few minutes and requires no sedation, no surgery and no recovery time.
“Many women change their minds when they find out how easy it is,” said Dr. Rogers.
As for feeling embarrassed about health issues, Dr. Rogers says don’t ever be afraid to speak up. “Being empowered to confront your health issues and to improve your life is nothing to feel embarrassed about,” she said.
“I guarantee you are not the only one with your set of concerns,” she added. “These issues are very common among women. And there isn’t anything that I haven’t seen and treated.”
