Urinary Stress Incontinence (SUI)

“Stress incontinence is the most common form of incontinence in women…”

The Causes

Stress Incontinence is often caused by physical changes resulting from pregnancy, childbirth, and the menopause. It is the most common form of incontinence in women but thanks to products like IncoStress, is entirely treatable.


Stress Incontinence

The Biology

Stress incontinence is usually caused by changes to the urethra, which is the tube which passes urine out from the bladder. It normally maintains a tight seal to prevent involuntary loss of urine and is helped by the pelvic floor muscles which support the bladder. If these muscles weaken, your bladder can move downward, pushing slightly out of the bottom of the pelvis toward the vagina.

The Triggers

For women with stress urinary incontinence, a weakened pelvic muscle floor or a defect in the urethra means the body is unable to support the urethra in its correct position. This prevents muscles that ordinarily force the urethra shut from squeezing as tightly as they should. As a result, urine can leak into the urethra during moments of physical stress such as coughing, laughing, sneezing or other movements.

Other Causes

Stress incontinence can also occur if the muscles that do the squeezing weaken. The problem is especially noticeable when you let your bladder get too full and can worsen during the week before your menstrual period.


IncoStress

The IncoStress is worn internally like a tampon. IncoStress is made from medical grade silicone and works by supporting and placing gentle pressure against the urethra from the vagina. IncoStress allows the bladder to be supported into its natural anatomical position and can be worn night and day. The unique shape of IncoStress enables the pelvic floor muscles to work naturally, which could improve the strength and tone when used regularly.

The urethra is the tube, which passes urine from the bladder out. It normally maintains a tight seal thanks to the sphincter muscle surrounding the urethra, to prevent involuntary loss of urine. For women with stress urinary incontinence, a weakened pelvic muscle floor or a defect in the urethra is unable to support the urethra in its correct position.

If coughing, laughing, sneezing or other movements, which place pressure onto the bladder cause you to leak urine, you may have stress incontinence. The problem is especially noticeable when you let your bladder get too full. Physical changes resulting from pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause can often cause stress incontinence. It is the most common form of incontinence in women and is treatable.
Pelvic floor muscles support your bladder. If these muscles weaken, your bladder can move downward, pushing slightly out of the bottom of the pelvis toward the vagina. This prevents muscles that ordinarily force the urethra shut from squeezing as tightly as they should. As a result, urine can leak into the urethra during moments of physical stress. Stress incontinence also occurs if the muscles that do the squeezing weaken.

Stress incontinence can worsen during the week before your menstrual period. At that time, lowered oestrogen levels might lead to lower muscular pressure around the urethra, increasing chances of leakage. The incidence of stress incontinence increases following menopause.

Using IncoStress supports the urethra and the bladder neck, placing these organs back to their natural anatomical position. As IncoStress supports this also allows you to identify and work the core muscles in the pelvic floor. The strengthening of these muscles contols involuntary loss of uring and allows a better muscle control during intimate moments.
