Losing the ability to control your bladder is a surprisingly common issue, but that doesn’t make you feel any less self-conscious about the condition. Therefore, finding a quick and effective solution is naturally at the top of your agenda. Dr. Cheryl Geer and the Best Self Medical Arts regularly help patients overcome their urinary incontinence to restore a sense of normality to their lives.
What is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is broadly defined by that simple description of being unable to control the bladder. However, the term covers several distinct types of urinary incontinence, which are;
- Stress incontinence, which is when you lose control of the bladder when sneezing, exercising, or putting pressure on the bladder.
- Functional incontinence, which is when a physical or mental health concern, such as arthritis stops you from getting to the toilet in time.
- Overflow incontinence, which is when you experience a dribble of urine caused by the inability to empty the bladder correctly.
- Urge incontinence, which is when the need to empty your bladder comes on urgently and you are forced to urinate within seconds.
It is possible for patients to experience several issues simultaneously. While it does occur for men too, women are statistically more vulnerable, particularly at a younger age. In any case, Dr. Geer can complete several treatments to manage the situation.
Treatments Available for Urinary Incontinence
Urinary incontinence needs to be treated in a way that is matched to the type of incontinence as well as your individual circumstances. The best solutions, however, are HRT and diVa laser treatments.
Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
Hormonal Replacement Therapy, also known as HRT, is a treatment that uses synthetic hormones to correct hormonal imbalances.
The female body undergoes stressful changes during pregnancy, post-childbirth, and the menopause. HRT uses bioidentical hormones to bring the body back to normality, which can aid bladder function and related wellness issues that may influence bladder control.
HRT is an option that may also be used by male patients suffering from urinary incontinence.
DiVa & Hormone Replacement Therapy Consultations Available
diVa Laser Treatments
Using hybrid fractional lasers, diVa laser treatments offer a precise and accurate way to treat weakened vaginal tissues to combat incontinence and other issues.
The diVa laser treatment is customized to the patient, operating with a Strengthened Quartz Dilator (SQD) for optimal efficiency. It enhances the function and appearance of the vagina, reversing the bladder control issues caused by childbirth and aging.
It is a form of laser treatment that is fast, efficient, and requires minimal downtime.
Am I a Candidate for Urinary Incontinence Treatment?
Urinary incontinence is not the type of health complaint that should be left untreated, as leaving it will allow the damage to escalate. While HRT and diVA laser treatments aren’t always suitable, most patients will find that their bladder control issues can be solved in this way.
If you are a new mom, incontinence may correct itself, although HRT is still an option. However, if you have experienced ongoing urinary problems caused by aging or other issues, Best Self Medical Arts will probably have the right solution. It is most likely to hit slightly older women, but anyone over 18 that has been left frustrated and self-conscious by urinary incontinence can look to the appropriate treatments.
