Urinary Incontinence Q & A

What is stress urinary incontinence?

Urinary incontinence, or bladder control loss, is the loss of urine unintentionally. Stress incontinence happens when there is a physical activity that causes leakage. Activities that can cause accidents to happen include:

  • Coughing
  • Sneezing
  • Laughing
  • Sexual intercourse
  • Exercise
  • Lifting heavy objects
  • Certain movements

If one or all of these actions causes leakage for you, stress incontinence could be the reason.

What causes stress urinary incontinence?

Stress urinary incontinence happens when the pelvic floor muscles are weak. Possible causes include:

Childbirth

Vaginal childbirth can cause the surrounding muscles to weaken the pelvic floor muscles.

Aging

As the body ages, the weakening of muscles can cause incontinence.

Hysterectomy

The uterus and bladder share some of the same muscle support systems so if the uterus is removed it may damage the supporting pelvic floor muscles. This can cause incontinence.

Body weight

Being overweight can cause stress incontinence due to the extra weight on the pelvic muscles.

What are the other types of urinary incontinence?

Urinary incontinence can make daily activities difficult and be embarrassing. There are many different types of urinary incontinence such as:

  • Stress incontinence - When laughing, sneezing, or exercising causes urine to leak
  • Urge incontinence - When the need to urinate comes on suddenly
  • Overflow incontinence - Dribbling of urine between bathroom breaks
  • Functional incontinence - Not being able to make it to the bathroom in time due to a physical or mental handicap
  • Mixed incontinence - Experiencing a mix of different reasons

If you experience any or all of these symptoms, it’s important to find solutions so you can have the confidence to live your life to the fullest again. Dr. Ziworitin specializes in stress urinary incontinence and can help you find solutions that work for you with treatments like  TempSure Vitalia.

How does TempSure Vitalia help with urinary incontinence?

TempSure Vitalia is a temperature-controlled radiofrequency device that helps with vaginal revitalization and urinary incontinence. It’s a probe that is inserted into the vagina and uses therapeutic temperatures on targeted tissues. There is a safety timer which is used when optimal temperatures are reached which gives dependable results. 

The radiofrequency stimulates the tissue production and sensation as it tightens and tones skin, this can improve urinary incontinence and bring you relief. Your body’s repairing of tissues internally and externally let you see results in the next several weeks.
The treatment takes under an hour and causes no downtime, which makes it a convenient option for busy women. It’s a simple, easy, and gentle procedure.
