According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, 25% – 45% of women have suffered from some type of urinary incontinence within the past year. Studies show that women are more than twice as likely to deal with this condition than men. At the Michigan Center for Regenerative Medicine, we’re proud to offer a number of regenerative medicine treatment options to help treat urinary incontinence.
You Don’t Have to Live with Urinary Incontinence
Many women, especially those who have had vaginal deliveries have come to expect urinary incontinence from time to time. Maybe it’s a small amount of urine leaking with a cough or sneeze, or maybe it’s an urgency to use the restroom frequently. Whatever the circumstance, many women have simply accepted that urinary incontinence is a part of getting older and/or having kids. At the Michigan Center for Regenerative Medicine, we want you to know that there are treatment options for urinary incontinence. We want to help you get back to not having to worry about urinary incontinence and we have a number of different avenues that we can pursue based on your symptoms.
Common Types of Urinary Incontinence
There are a variety of different types of urinary incontinence, a few of which are listed below:
- Urge Incontinence – This is also often referred to as “overactive bladder”. It’s the urgent need to urinate followed by an involuntary loss of urine. This is thought to be due to spasms of the muscles in the bladder.
- Stress Incontinence – With this type of incontinence, a small leak occurs due to a sneeze, laugh, cough or any type of quick movement that places too much pressure on the bladder.
- Mixed Incontinence – This simply means that you’re experiencing more than one type of incontinence.
- Overflow Incontinence – If you’re not able to fully empty your bladder when you use the restroom, you could be dealing with overflow incontinence. Certain medications can cause this issue, as well as diabetes and other conditions.
