Urinary incontinence is a problem that is common for women. As you age, the walls of the vagina grow looser, causing you to have to urinate more often, which can lead to leakage. When added stress is put on the bladder, such as when you sneeze, cough, bend down, or laugh, this can cause urine leakage. A benefit of getting vaginal rejuvenation is that it corrects this and restores your confidence.
Urinary Incontinence Explained
When you suffer from urinary incontinence, it means you can’t control your bladder anymore. This is what causes you to have bladder leakage. There is more than one type of urinary incontinence, including:
- Stress incontinence
- Urgency incontinence
- Functional incontinence
- Overflow incontinence
The doctors at Nore Health will evaluate your specific dilemma so that the best plan to fix your certain type of urinary incontinence is done right the first time. The reason for most bladder leakage lies in key symptoms synonymous with all types of urinary incontinence. These include:
- Urine leakage without any tell-tale signs
- Having an urge to have to urinate at that exact moment
- Urinating in the bed as you sleep
- Having tiny amounts of urine releases as you go about your daily routine
- Having an accident on yourself during regular activities
How Does Urinary Incontinence Happen?
There are many reasons that urinary incontinence happens. The genetics of urinary incontinence goes back to how your kidneys process water and the food you eat. The kidney’s function is to assist you in ridding waste, or food, and your water intake. This is what makes you have to urinate or have a bowel movement.
Your bladder has muscles that constrict when you need to urinate. As this happens, the urine is put through to the urethra, which allows the sphincter muscles to loosen so you can release the urine. With bladder incontinence, those same sphincter muscles cannot hold the urethra shut because of the bladder’s sudden tightening. This makes you have to urinate frequently and unexpectedly while also giving way to potential accidents.
Why Should You Choose Vaginal Rejuvenation As A Solution?
No matter what your age, urinary incontinence can affect you. Things like pregnancy, disease, and older age can all play a factor. Luckily, a solution such as vaginal rejuvenation can help. Not only does vaginal rejuvenation help with urinary incontinence, but it can also help with other women’s issues like vaginal dryness, appearance, tightness, and comfort.
In most cases, the procedure itself is quick and easy. The entire procedure can be completed in about 30 minutes, although some treatment may take upwards of two hours long. It doesn’t normally need the use of anesthesia. However, if you are combining it with other treatments, the doctor may opt to use it.
Types Of Vaginal Rejuvenation Procedures
There are different types of vaginal rejuvenation treatments available. They all are used for different purposes and can involve separate guidelines and time lengths to complete. Each one has additional benefits that are more cosmetic, but all of them can fix urinary incontinence. Your doctor can help you decide which one will work the best for your bladder leakage.
The MonaLisa Touch is a laser treatment that is hailed as quick and painless. A probe is inserted into the vagina that uses laser light to then heal and repair the vagina using its natural process of healing. It is used to treat incontinence, vaginal atrophy, vaginal dryness, and pain during intercourse. If you are looking for a quick treatment option, this is the one to choose. The whole process is done in less than five minutes without the use of anesthesia.
You can go about your day-to-day routine and drive yourself home afterward. The only thing you have to remember is to not insert anything in the vagina for five days. So, you have to hold off on intercourse until you are healed.
This procedure uses heat through radiofrequency to retighten your vagina. The treatment is done both inside and outside the vagina to improve tightness. It helps collagen production and grows from the heat, and this is what gives a better look and sensation. Since the heat is helping tighten the vagina walls, it will help you to control your bladder and rid you of urinary incontinence.
It can also be used to improve the outer part of the vagina. This is more cosmetic, but it will lift sagging skin by tightening the labial tissues.
Urinary incontinence can affect your sex life. You may not be able to enjoy sex as much or even reach orgasm due to the looseness or dryness. Aptly named the O-Shot, it increases your chance of getting an orgasm by way of using PRP, which is platelet-rich plasma that is gained from your own body. In a matter of twenty minutes, you can get this procedure done. It is not a surgery, so no need for anesthesia.
The doctor takes blood from you and converts the PRP from your blood. Then it is shot directly into your vaginal area, which they will numb. The results can be felt right after the treatment is complete. So, you can have to fix your bladder leaks and have a better sex life all with one shot.
