Nonsurgical treatment for bladder incontinence

Whether you experience occasional leaks or more frequent incidents, you don’t have to live with your “weak” or “overactive bladder” any more.

I recently recieved this question on the Patch:  I am a 42 year old women that leaks urine when i exercise and play tennis, are their any treatments besides surgery?

Yes,

A new device called Intone is available that stimulates your pelvic floor muscles, InTone provides vaginal muscle stimulation that strengthens the pelvic floor and inhibits the spasms of the bladder muscle.  It is a treatment for bladder leakage that does not have the risks of surgery, the side effects of pills, or the unreliablity of kegal exercises.

Urinary incontinence includes any condition in which there is accidental or unwanted loss of urine – whether it is just a drop, two, or more; whether it happens only occasionally or regularly.   It is a condition that affects at least 20% percent of women in the United States alone. In fact, some estimates bring this number up to 45% if including women who are undiagnosed. Additionally, approximately 25% of new mothers have unexpected urinary leakage after a vaginal delivery and about 16% of women have leakage following cesarean section

Incontinence need not inhibit anybody’s lifestyle. Those with the condition can lead as normal and as active a lifestyle as possible. All you need is to be educated about incontinence and know that there are dependable incontinence products designed and created by thoughtful manufacturers.
