It’s estimated over 50% of women will experience some degree of stress urinary incontinence (SUI) during their lifetime. Defined as the involuntary leakage of urine during physical movements like coughing, sneezing, running or heavy lifting, SUI remains highly underreported out of embarrassment or believing it’s an inevitable result of childbirth and aging.
However, incontinence negatively impacts personal relationships, self-confidence and overall wellbeing. A number of effective solutions now exist to dramatically reduce embarrassing urine leakage episodes. This article will cover common causes of incontinence, the latest therapies available in Qatar for long-term improvement, and how treating it can enhance your daily quality of life.
What Causes Feminine Incontinence?
Pregnancy and Childbirth
Carrying the weight of a growing baby and the intense physical stresses of labor/delivery often injure or overstretch supportive pelvic floor muscles allowing the nearby bladder to descend or prolapse through weakened areas leading to urinary control issues.
Menopause and Estrogen Decline
As women transition out of their reproductive years, diminishing estrogen levels contribute to urinary control problems by thinning tissue and compromising muscle tone integrity. Localized estrogen creams help strengthen incontinence-prone areas.
Excess weight compounds pressure on the bladder and pelvic structures contributing to leakage with movement. Losing weight combined with muscle-strengthening therapy improves issues significantly. Obese women undergoing treatment show the most benefit.
Treatments for Feminine Incontinence in Doha
At The Pearl Dermatology and Laser Center in Doha, our compassionate OBGYN Dr. Ghada Barbara customizes non-surgical feminine rejuvenation plans using leading therapeutic technologies:
Pelvic Floor Exercises: Kegel routines to isolate, contract and build pelvic floor strength. Biofeedback training ensures proper technique.
Radiofrequency Devices: Gentle heat from ThermiVa, Intima or FormaV devices stimulates new collagen, elastin and capillary bundles reducing incontinence episodes.
Fractional CO2 Laser: Resurfaces vaginal lining to improve tone, thickness and flexibility of the walls supporting the bladder and urethra. Minimally invasive.
Platelet Rich Plasma: Uses growth factors in patient’s own plasma to regenerate connective tissues and nerve endings linked to continence control.
How Improving Incontinence Enhances Life
Studies show treating urinary incontinence leads women to become more physically active without fear of embarrassing public leakage. It also restores intimate confidence to engage in sex more frequently with less anxiety. Pelvic floor strengthening provides the foundation supporting all core organs so additional issues like descending or prolapsed uterus also improve with therapy.
