Leakage of Urine (Urinary Incontinence) Treatment at Katy Women’s Pelvic Health
Urinary incontinence, commonly called involuntary urine leakage, is a prevalent concern for many women. It’s not just a medical issue; it impacts quality of life, emotional well-being, and confidence. At Katy Women’s Pelvic Health, we understand the sensitivity of this issue and are committed to providing compassionate, effective treatments to help women regain control and confidence.
Understanding Urinary Incontinence:
Urinary incontinence can be categorized into several types:
- Stress Incontinence: Leakage occurs during activities like coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercise. It’s typically due to weakened pelvic muscles.
- Urge Incontinence (Overactive Bladder): An intense, sudden need to urinate, followed by involuntary leakage. This may be due to an overactive bladder muscle.
- Mixed Incontinence: A combination of both stress and urge incontinence.
- Overflow Incontinence: Involuntary release of urine due to the bladder being constantly full.
- Functional Incontinence: Caused by other medical conditions that prevent a person from reaching a restroom in time.
Our Comprehensive Approach to Treatment:
At Katy Women’s Pelvic Health, we begin with a thorough evaluation, which may include:
- Medical History Review: Understanding the onset, triggers, and patterns of incontinence.
- Physical Examination: A pelvic exam to check for any physical causes or contributing factors.
- Bladder Diary: Keeping track of fluid intake and urine output.
- Urodynamic Testing: Measuring how well the bladder, sphincters, and urethra store and release urine.
- Cystoscopy: Using a scope to view the inside of the bladder.
Once diagnosed, our treatment recommendations may range from lifestyle changes and physical therapy to medications and surgical interventions. Treatment options include:
- Pelvic Floor Rehabilitation: Strengthening exercises for the pelvic muscles, often referred to as Kegel exercises.
- Medications: Drugs that help control bladder contractions, improve bladder function, or relax bladder muscles.
- Minimally Invasive Procedures: Such as sling procedures or bladder neck suspension to support the urethra and bladder neck.
- Nerve Modulation: Methods like sacral neuromodulation that help control the bladder by stimulating the nerves that influence bladder function.
- Pessary Devices: Inserted into the vagina to support structures that are causing incontinence.
