Put Aside Those Kegels, Ladies. Let’s Talk About Female Incontinence!

What’s The Harm In A Little Squirt?

Let’s be honest here, most women have had moments while laughing too hard, sneezing or coughing and end up peeing a little. It happens. Stress incontinence can be embarrassing and inconvenient, however women can learn how to adjust their position to limit or prevent leakage.

However, urge incontinence occurs without warning and can leak up to a cup or two of urine, inducing stress and anxiety to the women it affects. In addition, someone with urge incontinence will find the need to go to the bathroom, even if they already went.

Imagine being at work, at a dinner party, the gym, on a plane or out running errands and suddenly having involuntary urination. Scenarios such as these have become a reality for more than 17 million women in the US. The quality of life diminishes drastically for many affected women who suffer from incontinence. Fear of urinary leakage in social settings can cause women to withdraw. Ultimately, this withdrawal can lead to major depression, diminished self-confidence and a less than optimal quality of life.

Preach, Girl!

While the prevalence of stress incontinence tends to hover around the same rate, regardless of age, the likeliness of urge incontinence increases as a woman ages. While 10-30% of women under 40 experience urge continence, that percentage increases to 30-60% for women over 40.

Until recently, women were told this is an inevitable part of the aging process and to deal with it on their own. Many women may hesitate to seek help out of embarrassment, which can also be exacerbated by the fact that an overwhelming majority of urologists are men. It’s important to overcome the discomfort in seeking help, as it is essential to do so in order to get proper care.  If left untreated, symptoms can be damaging to a woman’s self-confidence and result in serious psychological suffering, taking a huge toll on a woman’s life.

Take Control And Get Your Life Back

Fortunately, there are successful, painless and quick treatment options available to women that can help improve urinary leakage. Women no longer have to suffer in silence and become a voiceless victim to their condition.

One such option is FemTouch™ laser therapy offered by Dr. Alter, in which a 360-degree laser revitalizes the tissue of the vaginal canal. The laser treatments promote new tissue growth, repairing and restoring the tissue along the vaginal wall. The process is non-surgical, non-hormonal, minimally invasive and done on an out-patient basis. The procedure is simple. Just stop by on your lunch break! It only takes less than an hour. Seriously, why wait?

Options Don’t End There, Ladies

The O-Shot™ is another exciting and simple treatment that is successful in diminishing urinary leakage. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), drawn from your own blood is injected straight into the G-spot, clitoris, and upper vagina, stimulating the growth of new cells in the vaginal wall and clitoris. This non-invasive, effortless procedure takes about 30 minutes and the treatment lasts up to 18 months!
