Bladder leakage, or urinary incontinence, affects women of all ages – although it becomes more common as women get older. This can be a frustrating problem that seriously interferes with a woman’s quality of life.
The good news is that there are now several non-invasive, as well as surgical, treatments that can minimize or eliminate bladder leaks.
Before determining the best treatment for a woman’s bladder leakage, it is important to identify which of the two types of urinary incontinence she has. Stress urinary incontinence causes a woman to “pee” when she laughs or coughs. Urge incontinence – also called overactive bladder – is characterized by the bladder suddenly emptying without warning, or a feeling of needing to urinate all the time.
Medications, topical hormones, pelvic floor therapy, pessaries and other non-invasive treatments may be sufficient to remedy certain types of urinary incontinence. In more severe cases, surgical intervention may be the best option.
