Do you pee when you cough or sneeze? We have a solution for you
Regain control over your bladder with an effective and pain-free treatment for urinary stress incontinence
As a woman, it is normal for your body to undergo drastic (and often unwanted) changes as you age, especially in the elasticity and strength of your vaginal tissues. These changes often result from vaginal childbirth, hormonal changes like reduced estrogen, and weakened pelvic floor muscles.
If you pee when you cough, laugh or sneeze, or if you feel like you don't have control over your bladder, it may be uncomfortable and embarrassing, but it is not uncommon. An estimated 15 million American women suffer from urinary stress incontinence. Urinary stress incontinence is the unintentional loss of urine, typically from physical activities like coughing, sneezing, running or heavy lifting.
Our practice offers Votiva, an FDA-approved medical device to treat urinary stress incontinence. Votiva uses thermal energy to tighten and reshape internal and external vaginal tissues to strengthen tissues and pelvic floor muscles, which support enhanced bladder control.
Votiva can be a great option for many women because it has minimal-to-no down-time and is a painless treatment.
