Stress incontinence can be caused by a wide variety of factors and appears in both men and women, but is particularly common among postnatal, menopausal and postmenopausal women.
Stress incontinence occurs when the muscles that usually hold the bladder tightly, also known as the pelvic floor muscles, and the muscles around the bladder neck become weakened.
This is often caused by muscle strain during childbirth or the loss of muscle tone that occurs during the menopause. In these instances, the muscles cannot hold the bladder closed effectively, especially when strain is put on them, such as when we run, jump, cough, sneeze, laugh or lift heavy objects. When this happens, sufferers of stress incontinence often feel the telltale leaks or dribbles that stress incontinence is characterised by.
Ultra Femme 360 treatment can help to improve symptoms of stress incontinence by triggering muscle and tissue regeneration in the vaginal canal and around the neck of the bladder to help increase the strength of the muscles and improve control over continence.
