What are the Symptoms of UD?

Up to 20% of patients with UD may not have clear signs. Symptoms are different for everyone, but the most common are:

  • Bladder or UTIs that return
  • Pelvic pain
  • Lower urinary tract symptoms (similar to an overactive bladder)
  • Nocturia (feeling the need to urinate several times at night)
  • Pain with sex
  • Dribbling
  • Blood in the urine
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Urinary blockage
  • Trouble emptying the bladder
  • Accidental loss of urine (incontinence)

Some women have a tender area or mass at the front vaginal wall. With a gentle press, urine or pus may show through the urethral opening.

It is important to note that the size of the UD doesn’t matter. In some cases, a very large UD may cause only minor symptoms. Or a small UD may still cause pain. Symptoms can also go away and come back.
