What Is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence (SUI) is when physical activity causes the involuntary loss of urine, putting strain on the bladder. It affects millions of people across the U.S., happening when the pelvic muscles are weakened and don’t correctly support the bladder and urethra.
What Types of Urinary Incontinence Are There?
Not every SUI is the same. Depending on the cause and symptoms, it can vary from person to person. It’s important to get an accurate diagnosis to determine the next steps.
Why Does Urinary Incontinence Happen?
Physical changes can cause an SUI to develop, including childbirth, pelvic surgery, menopause, hormonal deficiencies, obesity, and chronic constipation. It’s not all bad news: most people who seek treatment can improve their symptoms by consulting a medical professional. SUI is easily treated with lifestyle changes or simple surgery.
Should I Get Surgery for Urinary Incontinence?
If other treatments fail, your doctor can suggest surgery to improve the issue. Which surgical options are available for patients suffering from an SUI?
Leaking can hinder your day-to-day life, which is why it’s so important to talk to a doctor about the symptoms you’re experiencing. Book an appointment right here.
