Stress Urinary Incontinence

Stress Urinary Incontinence
Stress Urinary Incontinence affects women after child birth and is also caused by the ageing process and menopause.

Treatments for Stress Urinary Incontinence

Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) can greatly impede your confidence as it interrupts your life. Stress Urinary Incontinence occurs after child birth and during the natural ageing process. It is identified by urine leaking from the bladder due to physical stress such as laugh, coughing, sneezing or running as these movements put pressure on the bladder.

This unintentional release of urine causes feelings of embarrassment and frustration. SUI is caused by the weakening of the pelvic muscles and sphincter. After multiple pregnancies and vaginal births, the sphincter and pelvic muscles can be overstretched causing SUI. Hormonal changes and ageing can also affect women as a decrease in oestrogen and collagen can weaken the urethra.

Stress Urinary Incontinence can be improved at Bodyvie with Shelase which uses non-ablative laser technology to strengthen then connective tissue inside the vaginal wall, improving pelvic floor support to alleviate the effects of pelvic floor dysfunction and reduce unintentional urinary leakage.

SYMPTOMS of Stress Urinary Incontinence

The symptoms of Stress Urinary Incontience are the unintended leakage of urine during or after laughing, sneezing, coughing, exercise, standing up from sitting down, sex and lifting heavy objects.


CAUSES of Stress Urinary Incontinence

  • hormonal changes and ageing

Prevention of Stress Urinary Incontinence

Stress Urinary Incontinence may be prevented in some cases by weight management and a healthy high fibre diet, not smoking and the implementation of pelvic floor exercises.

"I saw Dr Weber for a private consult following
a misdiagnosis of depression by my GP.
Dr Weber suggested it sounded like perimenopause
and moved me off antidepressants
and on to HRT. I'm back to my old self
and can't thank him enough!"
