Urinary Incontinence Q & A

What are the symptoms of urinary incontinence?urinary incontinence

Urinary incontinence shows up in different ways.

Symptoms that suggest urinary incontinence include:

  • Frequent urination, more than eight times per day
  • Bedwetting
  • Sudden, intense urges to get to the restroom
  • Inadvertent leakage of urine during exercise or coughing

Urge incontinence

This type of incontinence involves a sudden, immediate need to urinate, usually with no warning. You may even experience an involuntary loss of urine before you reach a bathroom.

Stress incontinence

Stress incontinence is the leakage of urine that occurs when you exert pressure on your bladder. This may occur during exercise, laughter, sneezing, or heavy lifting.

What’s the treatment for urinary incontinence?

A variety of treatments for urinary incontinence are available, depending on the cause of your condition, the severity of your symptoms, and your personal health.t At first, you may try dietary changes, weight loss, focused timing of bathroom visits, or pelvic floor exercises and/or physical therapy to develop strength in the muscles.

Incontinence due to the thinning of vaginal tissue that naturally occurs with aging and menopause may benefit from hormone replacement medication and/or a noninvasive vaginal rejuvenation therapy.

Surgery to repair the connective tissue of your pelvic floor is another option. If you have urinary incontinence, consult Dr. Finkelstein at Bergenfield Gynecology & Wellness for evaluation and treatment.
