While both of these are wonderful things for a woman to experience, they are not without their issues. One such issue involves urinary incontinence or more simply the involuntary loss of urine. I think everyone can agree this is an embarrassing experience to go through and something we all want to avoid.
For the longest time issues like this would become a major long-term issue that many women have to deal with without an opportunity to address that. Thankfully with the advancement of technology, many new treatments have been developed that change aims to treat urinary incontinence.

Urine Leakage Treatment by SKIN CLUB Cosmetic Doctors
Although it might be easy to blame age as the sole cause for urinary incontinence, this is a gross oversimplification of a real medical issue that affects so many women. To give as clear an understanding as possible, we want to show the different factors that come into play when talking about this issue.
There are some things that can cause temporary loss of bladder control. The most obvious ones are spicy foods, sweet or sugary snacks, and alcohol consumption. All of these can increase the amount of urine while stimulating your bladder. This is what leads to an overactive bladder or urge incontinence.
Certain actions likephysical strain or coughing can cause you to experience brief moments of bladder control loss. In these cases only a little urine can escape in the form of a stress incontinence urge.
However, there are also some long lasting issue that can develop that affect your bladder and lead urinary incontiencne.
One of the most common is a weak pelvic floor muscle. The pelvic floor muscle is responsible for allowing urine to flow out, and a weakened one can lead to urinary leakage. This is usually a result of childbirth which stretches out the vaginal muscles. Multiple or unusually large babies can increase the severity of the damage to your irnary treact.
Wheny ou are trying to overexcert yourself in the toilet, it can lead to some health issues for your urethra and affect the strength of your pelvic floor and cause leaking.
Obstruction to your urinary tract can lead to serious issues as blockage affects how much urine flow you experience. Patients who have obstruction should have themselves checked out to a surgeon right away as these can be signs of kidney stones, tumors, and other issues.
As you get older, your body begins to experience sudden changes in the form of menopause among other things. For one, your bladder is now unable to store as much urine, meaning you will need to spend more time urinating.
With Menopause, sudden chemical changes such as the slow down of estrogen production affects the bladder and urethra health which can lead to urinary incontinence.
One of the biggest causes of this issue that most people generally agree with is stress. Stress incontinence is a real issue and affects many people, both young and old, and me and women. However, despite its name, stress incontinence doesn’t happen from say from stress at work or school. Instead, it happens from stress in our body, with hard motions such as coughing, sneezing, or heavy lifting. In these motions, this movement causes a strain on our abdomen that causes stress incontinence urge where a small amount of urine can leak out.
Urge Incontinence on the other hand is leakage when you least expect it. This happens for example when you are sleeping and you are unable to control the urges. Usually this is after you’ve been holding in your pee for some time and can no longer holding it back leading to urge incontinence overflow. Some people know urge incontiencne more as an overactive bladder.
Whereas urge incontinence happens because you can no longer hold your urine in any longer, overflow incontinence happens when you are letting it all out but don’t finish the job. This means you leak a little bit after urinating since you did not get everything out, leading to overflow incontinence.
This is not actually a single type of issue but just an umbrella term unlike the other issues we brought up. Mixed Incontinence just means a combination of different incontinence urinary issues that are working together.
If you are experiencing some of these issues, don’t worry yas here in Australia, many treatments have been developed in an attempt to combat urine incontence. Our clinic here in Melbounre offers many treatment options to stop leakage.
One way to combat urinary incontinence is by inserpting a special ring into your bladder neck. This sphincter will serve as a valve on your skin to stop the flow of urine and prevent ant urine leakage. This vavle is one you can press from inside your skin to let you control the urine flow.
This treatment involveplacing stripes of synthetic materials onto the tissue of your bladder to form a makeshift sling underneath. This sling goes to the area of thickened muscle where the bladder meets the urethrea. With it there, the skin can prevent any leakage from when you cough or sneeze
Surgery like this is reserved in times where you experience more than one issue such as mixed incontiencne. Doctors also use this to treat porlapse issues. This surgery works by combining regular prolaspse surgery with a sling procedure.
A pessary is a type of ring used by clinics in Australia to insert in your vagina and wear around. This comes in the form of a small but flexible silicone ring and its purpose is to support your urethra muscles so that it is less likely to leak when you are sneezing or doing something physical.
Aside from relying on surgery, a surgeon may recommend other alternative treatments for their patients depending on the severity. One example of this are certain medications that can help strengthen muscle fibers or improve estrogen production. These medications cannot fully treat your issue but cause some relief to the symptoms.
Aside from that, some clinics in Australia recommend some exercises to help strengthen your prostate and urethra, making leakage less of an issue.
