Do you pee when you cough?

Do You Pee When You Cough?

Stress urinary incontinence, or a leaky bladder, occurs when stress or pressure is placed on the bladder. This may happen from coughing, sneezing, lifting something heavy, physical moments in general, or running. This involuntary and uncontrollable loss of urine is uncomfortable, and often embarrassing for women who experience it. That is why we now offer our patients a medical aesthetic solution that is safe, gentle, and effective at treating this condition. 

Garden Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics now offers an effective laser treatment, known as Votiva for the treatment of stress urinary incontinence. The Votiva system is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for treatment of stress urinary incontinence, sexual dysfunction, and can be used in combination with Kegel exercises to help tighten the muscles of the pelvic floor so to increase muscle tone. The Votiva laser uses radio-frequency heat and acts directly on the vaginal tissues to help coagulate the tissue and strengthen the vaginal muscles. 

Votiva is an amazing solution option- our patients have been loving this treatment! It is effective and some claim that they no longer need to use a paid in their daily routine.

Votiva can help with stress urinary incontinence in women who are post-menopausal, as well as those who have recently given birth. 

If you are post-menopausal and are reluctant to use estrogen creams as a treatment for your stress urinary incontinence, Votiva may be a great solution for you. The cream solutions are often messy and long-term use of unappeased estrogen can be carcinogenic. Votiva is excellent because it helps restrengthen and the vaginal canal by stimulating and supporting collagen production. 

For women who recently gave birth, decreased vaginal laxity and stress incontinence are common issues. In fact, 60-80% of women may experience stress incontinence after giving birth. Votiva is ,therefore, a terrific incontinence treatment solution. 

If you are suffering from an uncontrollable bladder, no matter what stage of life you are in, it is not something you need to live with. With Garden Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics, and Votiva, you can regain control of your bladder and confidence.
