Incontinence Q & A

What is incontinence?

Urinary incontinence (UI) is the accidental loss of urine or bladder control. There are four types: urgency, stress, functional, and overflow. 

Symptoms may vary from a slight loss of urine after coughing, sneezing, or laughing to a complete inability to control urination (overflow).

This condition is common in men and women. Over 25 million adult Americans experience temporary or chronic urinary incontinence. It can occur at any age but is more common in women over 50.


What causes incontinence?

Urinary incontinence can occur for a number of reasons:

  • Intoxication
  • Unavailability of bathrooms
  • Vaginal infection
  • Constipation
  • Pregnancy and childbirth
  • Hormonal changes (like menopause)
  • Extreme anxiety
  • Intense laughter
  • Certain medications
  • Onset of illness
  • Underlying disease

While these causes may be a natural part of life, that doesn’t mean you must accept altered bladder function or discomfort as inevitable. There are treatments that can help. 


How do bladder control treatments work?

If physiological changes have caused decreased bladder function, an innovative energy-based treatment called Emsella delivers powerful improvements. This noninvasive treatment helps with bladder leakage. 

Emsella uses electromagnetic energy to create thousands of contractions in your pelvic floor muscles and surpasses anything you could achieve with even the most dedicated kegel exercise routine.

Best of all, you don’t have to exert energy or endure discomfort during treatment sessions. You sit on the comfortable Emsella seat as the treatment platform delivers the targeted energy. You may feel a mild buzzing or vibration, but there is no discomfort.


How long does it take to see results after urinary incontinence treatments?

It takes time for your body to adjust after Emsella treatments, just like a new workout regimen. Within a few weeks, you’ll notice improvements in bladder control.

Most men and women benefit from a series of Emsella treatments spaced out over time. Your practitioner can tell you what to expect regarding treatment timelines.

If you pursue bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, it can take six weeks or more before you see the full results of your treatment. Adjustments can be made as needed.
