I am 76 yrs.female had my urethra dilated why do I still have to a lot ?

Here are some ...: Urethral dilation for females is designed to ease the urethral functional narrowing from "stricture" or spam , but with widely variable symptomatic improvement so some controversy of its practice has remained.

At least 4 times length of female if erect. ...Read more

Can you tell me how is a urethral dilation done for a female?

Can you tell me how is a urethral dilation done for a female?

See answer: Urethral dilation is an outmoded practice with few indications in women compared to years ago. It was thought to be a cure for recurrent UTI or other urinary symptoms. It is now felt that there is little scientific basis for this. However, some women may have truly narrowed urethras (strictures) and dilation with successively larger instruments can temporarily restore normal caliber. ...Read more

Female, 59, new sticky greenish discharge from urethra, smells bad but no pain.  What to do?

In any case, it sounds like an infection, although atypical for most urinary tract infections. STDs are possible if at risk, but quite rare at your age. Don't mess around with this; see your doctor ASAP. Good luck! ...Read more
