Dr. Clifford D. Gluck M.D.'s Expert Contributions
I once received an anonymous letter at my office which changed my practice. As a urologist for 30 years, I have spent much of my career devoted to helping men with erectile dysfunction. It was after helping a man that I received the “anonymous” letter. Like a frightening ransom note, the letters...
A varicocoele may affect fertility. About 10% of men have a left sided varicocoele due, in part, to the anatomical effect of the compression of the left renal vein between the superior mesenteric artery and the aorta (the “nutcracker effect”) increasing the venous pressure in the left gonadal vein. This pressure leads to varicose veins in and around the testicle. The scrotum is a cooling device for the testicles, resulting in a drop of 1-2 degrees below body temperature. The varicocoele may interfere with the cooling of the testicles, and thus impair fertility. The reasons behind the varicocoele/fertility question are more complex, and not fully understood as of yet. While many men have a varicocoele, most are not infertile. Yet correcting a varicocoele for a man with infertility results in pregnancy in about 50% of cases. READ MORE
Yes, it is possible to have an orgasm without having an erection. Orgasm happens within the brain, even though it is manifested through the pelvic organs. It is also possible for people with spinal cord damage to have an orgasm by stimulating the head and the face. Clifford D. Gluck, MD, FACS READ MORE
Pain after urinating in a man may indicate infection of the bladder or prostate. It can also be the result of a bladder spasm, or overactive bladder. An evaluation by a physician should include both a urinalysis and a physical exam. Depending on the findings, treatment and further testing may be appropriate. READ MORE
Brownish urine can mean many things. It can mean blood in the urine, usually old blood, it can also mean bile in the urine. If you have liver disease the urine can turn brown. A fistula to the bladder or urethra from the colon can cause brownish fecal matter to color the urine. A brownish discharge from the urethra maybe either blood or an infection. I would advise you to get checked by a urologist. A urinalysis should be done. Clifford D Gluck MD FACS READ MORE
Chronic urinary tract infections in the elderly are usually the result of arophic vaginitis. With the loss of hormones at menopause, the wall of the vagina thins out and is unable to support healthy bacteria to prevent urinary tract infections. As you know, the vagina and the bladder are neighbors, and after menopause the vagina becomes a bad neighbor. This can be reversed through a couple of different strategies. One is to provide hormonal replacement, which should be bioidentical, such as estradiol and progesterone. A non-hormonal solution is through radio frequency vaginal rejuvenation, ThermiVa. This treatment induces the growth of new healthy vaginal tissue. With the addition of oral probiotics, the vagina can support a colony of healthy bacteria to prevent the “bad” bacteria from causing urinary tract infections. I have used this strategy in several of my patients, with good success. Additional benefits are improved vaginal hygiene, appearance, and lubrication. Clifford D. Gluck, MD, FACS READ MORE
There are many reasons to have pain in both the pelvic area or the lower back. If they are connected, it could be due to urinary tract infection, but it could also be due to a condition such as interstitial cystitis. That is a benign, but painful condition, which can be treated in a variety of ways. It is important for you to have another evaluation. Clifford D. Gluck, MD, FACS READ MORE
I would recommend a full evaluation with a urologist as well as primary care physician. If medication is not working, such as Viagra or Levitra or Cialis or Stendra, then other new and exciting treatments are available. There is some good evidence that platelet rich plasma and Low intensity shockwave therapy can restore improved function. READ MORE
I am 5 months pregnant and I am suffering from a burning sensation every time I urinate. What could it be?
You should immediately check with your doctor to rule out a urinary tract infection or a kidney stone. READ MORE
Your symptoms indicate genuine stress urinary incontinence, the most likely result of relaxation of the pelvic floor muscles, increased mobility of the urethra during coughing, and subsequent leakage of urine. There are new in exciting therapy is available, which are non-invasive. One is the Emsella chair, the other is a ThermiVa radio frequency energy. Emsella uses focused magnetic resonance energy to achieve forceful contraction of the pelvic floor muscles, and restore continence, simply by sitting fully clothed on the device. I ThermiVa uses a gentle radio frequency energy To induce collagenesis and restore vaginal integrity and thickness. It also may have a calming effect on the bladder. READ MORE
I would ask your doctor about the possibilities of either prostatitis or interstitial cystitis. These are two conditions which might have a normal urine but still result in painful urination. Although interstitial cystitis is most often diagnosed in women, it is fairly prevalent in the male population. READ MORE
Yes you should check with your doctor, and all appropriate tests to rule out STDs, as well as a urine culture. Make sure you follow up with your doctor regarding the results in any further therapy that might be needed. It is always wise to check the prostate to make sure there is no inflammation or prostatitis. READ MORE

In the United States, the most common type of kidney stone is made from calcium oxalate. Spinach is very high in oxalates, as well as some other related leafy green vegetables such as Swiss chard or kale. You can eat the spinach in moderation, but there are better ways to prevent the stones, starting with hydration, and some forms of medication. This is a good question to discuss with your urologist.

You should immediately consult your doctor for a urinalysis, culture, and any further work up that is indicated from the results of that test. Smelly urine can indicate infection, or it may be very innocent result of eating vegetables. Asparagus is notorious for smelly urine in some people. READ MORE
A few studies suggest that an acidified urine may help to prevent some infections. Larger trials to look at cranberry juice have found no beneficial effect from drinking the juice in order to prevent infection or stones. READ MORE
Cloudy urine may be the result of precipitation of benign crystals, or it could mean infection. Usually if there is an infection, there are symptoms associated with an irritable bladder, such as urinary frequency and pain on urination. In any event, I would recommend you see your doctor to have the urine checked for infection or cells and appropriate follow-up depending on the results. READ MORE
I’m trying to pass a small kidney stone, you can strain your urine through a regular strainer or disposable strainer given to you by your doctor.

Of course, if you develop pain out of control, fever, chills, or severe urinary problems, Then you should go seek immediate emergency medical care. READ MORE
Dark yellow urine can represent either dehydration, concentration of vegetables in the urine, or sometimes vitamins. Check your diet and vitamins, if you were taking a lot of beta-carotene, that can color urine yellow. READ MORE
