Treatment for urine leakage

(Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI))

The treatment of urine leakage is one of the most prevalent issues among women. Urinary incontinence is the term used to indicate uncontrollable urine loss. When there is a rise in intra-abdominal pressure (e.g., from coughing, sneezing, etc.), it can cause stress urinary incontinence or SUI.

One thing you need to note is that mental stress has no relation to stress-related incontinence. SUI is a very common bladder problem in women. In this article, we can see the cause and treatment for SUI in detail.


Women have stress urine incontinence more commonly than men. When a woman gets pregnant, gives birth, or goes through menopause, the connective tissues supporting her urethra and bladder weaken, which leads to SUI. The tissues and muscles that control the pressure on the bladder and urethra and limit urine leakage become weaker over time. Any activity that puts pressure on your pelvic and abdominal muscles can put stress on your bladder and thus resulting in urine leakage.

You might experience urine leakage if you




*Bend over

*Lift heavy objects


When you engage in any of these activities, you might not have urine leakage. However, any activity that puts pressure on your full bladder can raise the possibility of uncontrollable urine leakage.


The fundamental evaluation involves a

*Detailed background study of the patient

* Excess weight

* Injury to the lower back’s nerves.


The treatment for urine leakage are as follows:

*Pelvic exercise (Kegel’s exercise) needs to be practised, which improves the tone of perineal muscles and leads to symptom relief, as part of the first treatment.

*For moderate to severe cases of SUI, sling operations especially TOT is very effective and it is the most preferred treatment now.

*The use of vaginal lasers has significantly improved the lives of women who suffer from mild cases of SUI.

*For women with mild cases of SUI (grade 1), the vaginal laser treatment offered as part of cosmetic gynecology services is a simple, non-invasive, and acceptable treatment option.There is significant patient satisfaction and improvement in the symptoms.

*Vaginal laser treatment is a complementary or alternative treatment to the currently available treatments, including surgery, pelvic floor exercises, and topical hormonal treatment.
