A very good day to you

I have gone through your question. let me explain to you in a letter brief manner as to what might be happening. usually as age increases the muscles in the lower abdomen and in around the uterus in a female become lax. Due to this difficulty in holding back or also urinating properly. Now because the urine gets stored improperly in the bladder it can lead to infections known as urinary tract infection. since your mother is complaining of pain in the vagina and frequent urination I think you should consult a general physician before the consultation with the gynecologist.

complete blood count along with urine routine and microscopy investigation can be done to rule out UTI. once the doctor has had a look at that area he will be in a better position to guide you. in old age the problems of prolapse also occur in which some part of the the cervix might come down. that has to be ruled out and it can be ruled out on basic examination. therefore I would suggest that you go to a general physician and rule out urinary tract infection followed by gynecologist visit. do let me know if you have any further questions.. I would be happy to help

Investigations to be done:

complete blood count urine routine and microscopy

Differential diagnosis:


Treatment plan:

shall be decided after the investigations are done
