Urinary incontinence is a loss of normal control of the bladder causing involuntary release of urine. A person with urinary incontinence may feel strong, urgent, sudden need to urinate, urinating frequently and involuntary loss of urine. It may be a normal part of growth in some people that should naturally disappear over time. However, if urinary incontinence does not disappear, treatment options would be available which would also help to improve the condition when the underlying causes are treated. An individual may feel the severity from leaking urine occasionally when sneezing or coughing to having sudden urge to urinate that is so strong you do not get the chance to reach a toilet.
Urinary incontinence can be experienced more by women compared to men – can be associated to childbirth and pregnancy, menopause and because of female urinary tract structure.

Skinclub Urinary Incontinence Treatment Melbourne
Depending on the symptoms, it can be categorized into 5 basic types:
Leakage of large amount of urine in unexpected times, even while sleeping
Involuntary loss of urine with minimal pressure such as coughing or sneezing
Overflow incontinence is a frequent leaking of urine involuntarily because the bladder is not emptied completely
Urine loss resulting to inability to reach the toilet
Mixed incontinence is a combination of two or more types, mostly stress and urge incontinence may occur together
An individual can undergo treatments depending on the severity of incontinence, type and underlying causes. There are several treatments that can be done in Melbourne.
The goal of this treatment is to gradually increase the amount of urine that an individual can hold. This can be possible by deferral of voiding in order to increase the duration in between toilet trips.
To improve your bladder control, it is essential to exercise the pelvic floor muscles in a correct way to strengthen and enhance the muscles which help in holding urine. The pelvic floor is made up of stretched muscles from front pubic bone through the bottom of the backbone. Pelvic floor exercises strengthen the muscles that support pelvic contents and stops the escape of wind, urine or feces.
Exercises also include muscle tightening which is the muscle that we use to stop urinating. Hold it for five seconds then release and relax for five seconds, then gradually try to hold the contractions for 10 seconds each time. Try to do it in 10 repetitions each day.
Diet and Fluid intake management
Reducing excessive fluid intake, losing weight and increasing physical activity can help improve the condition. Also, avoid caffeine and alcohol intake as well as eating spicy foods which might stimulate the bladder.
If an individual still has symptoms after undergoing conservative procedures and still did not work, surgery is often being suggested.
For urge incontinence:
Injecting Anti Wrinkle Injection into the bladder might help improve the condition. This procedure is being done as one-day case and the result can be seen immediately. Injections can be repeated if required.
For stress incontinence:
Artificial urinary sphincter
Most common medications for the treatment are within the general category of anticholinergics – medicines that are designed to help the bladder relaxed.
This condition is common in older people especially women. Incontinence can often be cured and controlled. Several treatments and procedures are available to improve this condition.
Based on studies, women spends approximately $750/year. After surgery approximately 2 years, the cost is between $190-$560.
