Urinary Incontinence Q & A
What is urinary incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine. The loss can be a small dribble after a sneeze to a complete emptying of your bladder without any control.
Urinary incontinence is usually a symptom of another health condition, such as:
Urinary tract infections (UTI) or constipation
Pregnancy or childbirth
Menopause or hysterectomy
Bladder changes, including involuntary muscle contractions
Neurological disorder such as Parkinson’s disease or multiple sclerosis
What are the types of urinary incontinence?
Types of urinary incontinence include:
Overflow incontinence: unable to completely empty your bladder causing leakage
Urge incontinence: sudden intense urge to urinate that’s difficult to control, also referred to as overactive bladder (OB)
Stress urinary incontinence: small loss of urine after sneezing or during exercise
Functional incontinence: unable to control urination due to a functional disability
Mixed incontinence: combination of more than one of the above
How can I manage my urinary incontinence?
Management of your urinary incontinence depends on the type of incontinence you have and the underlying cause.
Dr. Kellogg may recommend a number of treatments, including:
Pelvic floor therapy
Bladder training with a bladder diary
If conservative treatment can’t manage your symptoms, Dr. Kellogg may recommend incontinence sling procedure, which is a surgery that helps keep your urethra closed to reduce your risk of loss of urinary control. It’s primarily used as a treatment for stress incontinence.
What is pelvic floor therapy?
Pelvic floor therapy, also known as Kegel exercises, is a noninvasive treatment aimed at improving the strength and tone of your pelvic muscles so that you have more control over your urination. These exercises may help if you have stress or urge incontinence.
Dr. Kellogg develops a specific exercise program for you based on your health needs.
What is MonaLisa Touch®?
MonaLisa Touch is an in-office laser treatment that improves vaginal health and strength by stimulating the production of collagen, which is the protein that makes your vaginal walls more pliable and strong.
Improving vaginal health with MonaLisa Touch® may also help improve mild cases of stress urinary incontinence.
