The purpose of this study is to characterize bladder urinary oxygen tension (BUOT) in women whose urinary microbiomes contains at least one anaerobic bacterial species versus women whose urinary microbiomes do not contain anaerobes.
Throughout the human body, microbial communities (microbiota) depend on their environment, including the level of oxygen (anaerobic vs. aerobic). Recently published evidence documents the existence of a female urinary microbiota (FUM) and provides evidence that the FUM differ based on lower urinary tract symptoms, i.e. no bladder symptoms, urgency urinary incontinence, and urinary tract infection1-4. Members of the FUM include bacteria that require oxygen (aerobes), those that abhor oxygen (anaerobes) and those that thrive in both conditions (facultative anaerobes)5. This last group of microbes is known to consume low levels of oxygen to maintain an anaerobic environment. Yet, virtually nothing is known about oxygen levels in bladder urine even though bladder urine oxygen tension may both affect and be affected by the FUM. Given the role oxygen levels play in other parts of the human body, the investigators request resources to investigate bladder urine oxygen levels. The study is designed to understand if BUOT levels differ in FUMs with and without at least one anaerobe, and if so, if there are any patient factors or urinary symptoms associated with certain BUOT

An ANTIMUSCARINIC AGENT selective for the MUSCARINIC RECEPTORS of the BLADDER that is used in the treatment of URINARY INCONTINENCE and URINARY URGE INCONTINENCE.
Involuntary loss of URINE, such as leaking of urine. It is a symptom of various underlying pathological processes. Major types of incontinence include URINARY URGE INCONTINENCE and URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE.
Symptoms of disorders of the lower urinary tract including frequency, NOCTURIA; urgency, incomplete voiding, and URINARY INCONTINENCE. They are often associated with OVERACTIVE BLADDER; URINARY INCOMPETENCE; and INTERSTITIAL CYSTITIS. Lower urinary tract symptoms in males were traditionally called PROSTATISM.
Abnormal descent of a pelvic organ resulting in the protrusion of the organ beyond its normal anatomical confines. Symptoms often include vaginal discomfort, DYSPAREUNIA; URINARY STRESS INCONTINENCE; and FECAL INCONTINENCE.
A surgical specialty concerned with the study, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases of the urinary tract in both sexes, and the genital tract in the male. Common urological problems include urinary obstruction, URINARY INCONTINENCE, infections, and UROGENITAL NEOPLASMS.
Non-invasive bladder cancer is a cancer that is only in the inner lining of the bladder. Invasive bladder cancer is cancer that has spread into the deeper walls of the bladder. When the cancer has spread outside the bladder to other parts of the body, th...
