What is Stress Incontinence?
Stress Urinary incontinence means you leak urine when you increase the pressure on the bladder. SUI occurs when an activity, such coughing, sneezing, laughing or exercise, causes a small amount of urine to leak from the urethra, which is the tube urine passes through.
This condition is caused by a loss of strength in the urethra due to a weakened pelvic support structure. With stress incontinence, movements and activities put greater abdominal pressure on the bladder. That causes the leakage of urine.
Over time, especially after childbirth, vaginal tissue can overstretch, creating a feeling of looseness (laxity) and reduced sensitivity in the vaginal area.
If you have stress incontinence, you may feel embarrassed, isolate yourself, or limit your social life, especially exercise and leisure activities. With treatment, you’ll likely be able to manage stress incontinence and improve your overall well-being.
FemiLift treats the entire area, supporting the urethra, increasing the thickness of the vaginal walls and strengthening the pelvic support structure. The treatment reduces the symptoms of SUI and effectively restores urinary continence.
