Treat Urinary Stress Incontinence Naturally — Live an Active Life
Are you embarrassed by urinary stress incontinence? Don’t be. You’re not alone. And the good news is it’s very treatable. The first step is asking for help.
If you pee a little when you laugh, sneeze, or stretch, you may suffer from urinary stress incontinence. It’s a surprisingly common condition — affecting 30% of all women ages 30 to 60 and 1 to 5% of all males. It most commonly happens to pregnant women, especially women who have multiple births.
Women going through menopause are also at risk, as are men who suffer prostate problems.
6 Types of Urinary Stress Incontinence
- Overflow incontinence happens when you leak small amounts of urine from a full bladder.
- Psychological incontinence has a mental root cause rather than a physical one.
- Total incontinence is a constant dripping of urine.
- Urge incontinence is when you feel an immediate urge to urinate followed by leakage.
- Stress incontinence is leakage caused by heavy lifting, sneezing, coughing, or laughing.
- Mixed incontinence is two or more of the above.
- Treatment for Urinary Stress Incontinence
Fortunately, urinary stress incontinence is highly treatable. Diet and weight loss can be effective, as can Kegel exercises. A non-surgical insertion of a pessary device into the vagina can also be done to support pelvic prolapse.
The O-Shot Treatment of Urinary Stress Incontinence & Sexual Health
Dr. Blatman also specializes in o-shot treatments — a painless injection of platelet-rich plasma to help regenerate tissue around the urethra. The 45-minute procedure can also have very positive effects on sex drive and your ability to have an orgasm. We’d also recommend pelvic exercises are usually done as well.
The o-shot uses your own plasma to encourage the natural healing of the body. We gather the healing platelets from your plasma using a special centrifugal device.
These are also natural, non-invasive treatments that can be highly effective for urinary stress incontinence.
