Urinary incontinence (uncontrollable leakage of urine) is a very common and embarrassing problem in women. Urinary incontinence in women can be divided into three main types:
- Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is leaking urine when coughing, laughing, or sneezing. Leaks also can happen when a woman walks, runs, or exercises.
- Urgency urinary incontinence is a sudden strong urge to urinate that is hard to stop. Women with this type of urinary incontinence may leak urine on the way to the bathroom. If you have an “overactive bladder,” it means that you have symptoms of urgency and frequency that may or may not include incontinence.
- Mixed incontinence combines symptoms of both SUI and urgency urinary incontinence.
We recommend EMSELLA, the revolutionary, FDA-cleared treatment for all types of urinary incontinence. EMSELLA is a non-invasive, painless, no downtime procedure that takes all the work and time out of strengthening the pelvic floor muscles. We also offer surgical options.
