Bladder Issues - Women's Helpful Tips!

Updated on March 24, 2013

Need Help With Women Issues?

Do you leak urine when you sneeze, laugh or cough? Did you know that over 13 million women experience leakage during abdominal pressure or strain? This leakage is called “Stress Urinary Incontinence” (SUI). I realize this may be embarrassing to discuss for all mother's, sisters, wives and daughters, but there are so many treatments available today that you can get this disease. Stress Urinary Incontinence should be diagnosed by an Urologist or Urogyencologist. They will evaluated you and give you the best treatment options available for you.

There is help!

Women's Health - There is Help!

 

SUI is often predisposed by tough exercise, vaginal childbirth, menopause and loss of pelvic muscle strength. People used to think stress incontinence came with aging. But the truth is, it's a condition that affects both young women and old. And unfortunately, ignoring it can't help and won't make it go away. However, this is treatable and when treated correctly can offer a better quality of life for most patients.

Here are some choices of procedures;

Behavioral Therapy – helps retain bladder and sphincter muscles, very good exercises to do at home or anywhere. Talk with you physician about these exercises.

Bulking Therapy– several available today, however, I believe that either natural collagen protein or another bio-compatible substance into the tissues surrounding the urethra/bladder junction to help reinforce the closure mechanism and prevent accidental urine leakage when laughing, coughing or sneezing. Talk to your physician about these options and which one is best for you.

Surgery - helps rebuild the urinary system's structural design of the anatomy to restore normal bladder function. One of the most effective surgical treatments for SUI is the surgical implantation of a urethral sling. It involves placing a thin strip of material underneath the urethra to help support your natural tissues. It's minimally invasive, and is one of today's most successful repairs. In fact, hundreds of thousands of slings have been implanted worldwide. Again, talk with you physician about these options and which is potentially best for you. As women, we need to research and discuss with other experts before jumping into anything.

I encourage to seek help because these treatments can help you return to an active lifestyle. Life is too short to worry about wearing pads and with technology today, anything is possible.

      Very informative post! It's tough to know where to turn to get advice on this topic. The urethral sling procedure you mentioned is a great alternative to other urinary incontinence treatments because it's minimally invasive, less painful and requires less recovery time than other surgeries.

      Hey Ladybird, I just figured how to put a link to your hub in mine. I did it in a link capsule just below the comments.

      Thanks! Our articles will complement each other well, I think.

      Hey Ladybird, I'm glad you wrote about SUI. No one talks about this, and it's unbelievable how many women suffer from it. I wrote a hub about my experience with SUI, kegels and the TVT procedure. It's called, "I Pee When I Laugh - Incontinence After Childbirth" Check it out. Maybe we can link together?
