Urinary Incontinence Treatment

Understanding Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control. The two most common types of urinary incontinence that affect women are stress incontinence and urge incontinence, also called overactive bladder. Incontinence affects twice as many women as men. This may be because pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause may make urinary incontinence more likely. It can affect your wellbeing as this problem can be quite an embarrassing condition. A simple laugh or sneeze can result in you passing urine. 

Millions of women worldwide are living with urinary incontinence. This condition causes involuntary or uncontrolled urination. It can affect your quality of life because it’s an embarrassing condition. Even simple reactions like laughing or sneezing can cause you to pass urine. EMSELLA is a new treatment that can help you restore control of your bladder. By reducing urinary symptoms, it can also increase your self-confidence.

After several treatments, these muscles gain strength. This allows you to gain better control of urination.

Three reasons for prolonger incontinence:

Stress Incontinence

Stress urinary incontinence is the accidental leakage of urine when doing things like coughing, sneezing, or standing. It is one of the most common types of urinary incontinence. It is common in women but also affects men. Physical activity puts pressure on the bladder, then the bladder leaks. It can be a few drops of urine or more and it can be mild, moderate or severe. 

Urge Incontinence

Overactive bladder (OAB) or urge incontinence, is being unable to delay urination, you have a sudden, intense urge to urinate followed by an involuntary loss of urine. You may need to urinate often, including throughout the night. Urge incontinence may be caused by a minor condition, such as infection, or a more severe condition such as a neurological disorder or diabetes. It is more common in men with prostate problems and in women after menopause. It is caused by many things. Even diet can affect OAB.

This very common bladder problem causes both urgency and frequency of urination that result in too many trips to the bathroom. Sometimes a person can feel such a strong urge to urinate that they cannot make it to the bathroom in time, and end up wetting themselves.
