Few things are more embarrassing than urinary incontinence. Even the adult pads and other products worn to deal with the problem bring their own humiliations. The lack of control can severely constrain your social life and work life. Fortunately, there are things that can be done to treat urinary incontinence. We are proud to offer Votiva treatment right here at Anazao MD.
The Downsides of Medicines and Exercises
There are several medicines on the market used to treat urinary incontinence. They include:
- Alpha blockers, which are used by men because they relax muscles in both the bladder and the prostate.
- Anticholinergics, which calm bladder spasms and are good for what’s called urge incontinence. In urge incontinence, the person feels an urge to urinate that’s followed by a loss of bladder control.
- Mirabegron is a drug that both calms the bladder’s muscles and allows it to hold more urine. It also increases the volume of urine a person can pass at one time.
However, these medications have their host of downsides, not to mention the side effects that many of them can cause.
Some women try to combat their urinary incontinence using Kegels, which are exercises that tone the muscles of the pelvic floor. They claim to help both urge incontinence and stress incontinence. However, for many women, these treatment methods can only do so much. That’s where Votiva comes in.
