Bladder leakage of pain is quite common and often frustrating and upsetting.
At Azure Medical Cottesloe, we understand how frustrating and distressful it can be to have a prolapsed bladder problem. Urinary Incontinence is a medical term used to explain the leakage of urine, a common issue especially for women who have previously had babies, and women who are menopausal or peri-menopausal. It is also common in younger children and elderly people.
This form of Incontinence happens when there is a loss of support to the Urethra, often caused by lax or damaged pelvic floor structures. This affects the function of the sphincter at the base of the bladder, so that when put under pressure by straining, coughing, sneezing, laughter, etc. urine can be squeezed out, resulting in unpleasant experiences or the need to wear pads or protection.
How We Treat Urinary Incontinence.
The type of treatment for urinary incontinence will depend on the type and severity severity of the condition you’re experiencing. Treatments range from:
- Pelvic floor or bladder pain control exercises
- Medicine and prescriptions
- Surgical options
- Recently a new treatment option has become available – laser treatment for stress incontinence, vaginal laxity, menopausal vaginal rejuvenation and even laser treatment for vaginal prolapse. This can often remove or postpone the need for medication or surgery.
Here at Azure Medical, we can use these treatments to help improve your bladder control. If you would like to book an appointment at Azure Medical in Cottesloe please call us on 9286 9900, click on the Book Appointment button or fill out a contact us form.
