Urinary Incontinence

The lack of bladder control is a very common problem affecting as many as 20 million adult women. Although if affects many, it is not a natural part of aging.

Causes

Women lose bladder control for different reasons. The most common include weakening of the pelvic floor muscles and involuntary bladder spasms. Medicines, lack of estrogen, medical or nervous system diseases and previous childbirth can also contribute to the problem. Several techniques may be used to determine the cause of urine leakage, including:

Reviewing a patient’s medical history
Conducting a physical examination
Collecting a urine culture to detect infection
Examining the inside of the bladder through a scope
Identifying any bladder or urethral dysfunction through urodynamics (pressure testing of bladder)

Pelvic Floor Disorders

Pelvic Floor Disorders may consist of prolapse of the pelvic organs (dropped bladders and fallen wombs), hernias of the vaginal walls (cystocele or rectocele) and weakening of the pelvic floor muscles. These anatomical problems could affect your bladder function.

Treatments

Fortunately, treatment of urinary incontinence is no longer restricted to surgery. Effective options include:

  • Medication — Drugs help prevent bladder spasms, increase urethral resistance and improve urine storage.
  • Biofeedback — Exercises to strengthen pelvic muscles and improve bladder support. State-of-the-art equipment is used to help perform exercises correctly.
  • Bladder Drills — By urinating at scheduled times, bladder function can dramatically improve.
  • Pelvic Electrical Stimulation — Low intensity stimulation of the pelvic muscles and bladder.
  • Surgery — Scientific advances in surgery have increased the long-term success and made recovery time shorter.
  • Collagen — Injectable substance to increase urethral resistance for some types of stress incontinence.
  • Pessary — A small support is fit for your vagina for support of the bladder neck or prevention of prolapse.
  • Vaginal Cones — Small weights to help strengthen the pelvic muscles.
