I am forever grateful for Dr. Jaenicke and his team at Bellefonte Womens Care for their dedication and passion in helping me regain a sense of normalcy in my life. Thank you!

Kelley Wheeler

I was quite ill when I first visited his office and wasn’t sure what to expect. Dr. Jaenicke was friendly, professional, and very informative. I left feeling very confident that I would receive the best care possible…and I truly did!

Kim Klein

Dr. Jaenicke discussed treatment options and possible outcomes and complications of treatment with my husband and me.  He answered all of our questions and we decided that the best option for me would be surgery. … I am five weeks post-op and feel great!  Dr. Jaenicke and his office staff have went above and beyond to care for me.

Stress incontinence occurs when pelvic muscles have been damaged, causing the bladder to leak during exercise, coughing, sneezing, laughing, or any body movement that puts pressure on the bladder.

What is urge incontinence?2017-11-07T10:39:30-05:00

Urge incontinence, the urgent need to pass urine and the inability to get to the toilet in time, occurs when nerve passages along the pathway from the bladder to the brain are damaged, causing a sudden bladder contraction that cannot be consciously inhibited.

What is overflow incontinence?2017-11-07T10:39:35-05:00

Overflow incontinence refers to leakage that occurs when the quantity of urine produced exceeds the bladder’s holding capacity.

What is Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP)?2017-11-07T10:39:39-05:00

The bulging, sagging or falling of pelvic organs (bladder, uterus, rectum, intestine). Prolapse develops slowly, so symptoms may be mild and vague at first, such as pain during sexual intercourse or inability to hold in a tampon. As prolapse progresses symptoms may develop into a feeling that something is protruding from the vagina, a heavy sensation in the vagina or an inability to urinate or have a bowel movement without inserting the fingers into the vagina.
