Don't let embarrassing urinary symptoms take control of your life. We offer various urinary incontinence treatments.
Other causes of incontinence include side effects of certain drugs, diabetes, which can cause excessive production of urine, and problems with the urinary system including bladder stones.
This is not a definitive list and symptoms will vary with each patient. Please ask your doctor for more information.
Your consultant will press on your lower abdomen to feel your bladder. They may feel inside the vagina while pressing on your abdomen to check if there is any abnormality in the pelvic area and they may also use a speculum. They may also check for leakage when you cough and test the sensation around the bridge between your vagina and bottom (the perineum).
A sample of mid-stream urine will probably be taken to test for infection, bladder stones or other problems and the pressure inside your bladder will be measured.
For more information, and if you have any queries about being diagnosed, speak to your consultant.
If you have urinary incontinence caused by a weak or damaged pelvic floor, and physiotherapy and medication haven’t helped, your consultant may recommend vaginal slings and tapes. These support the entrance to the bladder (the urethra), by holding it in the correct position. The tape is inserted through very small cuts in the vagina.
The procedure is performed under local or general anaesthetic and usually takes around 40 minutes.
Other treatment options include injecting collagen or silicone into the tissues of the pelvic floor. This is injected around the neck of the bladder (the urethra) to reduce the opening and helps to reduce leakage.
For more information on drugs and their side effects, or if you have any queries about surgery, speak to your consultant.
