Do you lose urination sometimes? When you laugh, have you ever surprised with an awkward moment? No reason to be confounded! Sometimes, its correlation with old age causes the stigma of female incontinence. But this is misunderstood: the Stress Urinary Incontinence Toronto can affect women of all ages. And whatever your age is, you do not have to continue your living under the burden of covering your crash.
Causes & Symptoms of Stress Incontinence
Urine leakage is usually caused by prolonged stretching and lack of elasticity or weakness of the connective tissue (located just above the urethra) in the pelvic floor. Usually, these signs are caused by childbirth and pregnancy. As a result, the bladder is then placed on top of the urethra close to the vagina front. That’s not a normal position. Since the urethra comes into contact with the bladder, it prevents the bladder from easily opening and closing. This internal mismatch will lead you to urine leakage into and out of the urethra. It usually happens while coughing or laughing.
The other form is led by a sphincter weakening called an intrinsic sphincteric deficiency (ISD). The sphincter is a ring of muscles at the bottom of the bladder that is used to protect the bladder to prevent urine from passing. When the sphincter cannot seal in the contents of the bladder, urine may be transmitted into the urethra. If the incontinence occurs from ISD or pelvic floor weakening, non-invasive laser therapy may provide quite good results.
Laser Treatment for Stress Incontinence
Your doctor starts your treatment with a laser speculum that is inserted into your vagina. The tool is a smooth, cylindrical tube that acts like a rod that has a laser device on its end. The system sends laser pulses which last only for micro-seconds. Notice that the system can focus the urethra’s tissues at the top because they interfere with the bladder opening and closure. That’s why the unit has a 90-degree mirror at its end. It can refract the beams from the laser upwards by being located at this angle.
Laser procedures are non-invasive solutions that do not induce bleeding or require sutures or scars. IncontilaseTM is the latest laser therapy and is a good alternative for the treatment of mild to severe cases of Urinary Stress Incontinence. The treatment is intended to provide more help to the weakened bladder and restore normal control to urinary functions.
