Worldwide, around 200 million people suffer from some form of urinary incontinence. As if 25 million adult Americans experiencing mild to severe incontinence wasn’t already a surprising statistic, the fact that 75-80 percent of them are women is even more surprising. It is also one of the most ignored and tabooed topics, even in modern-day society.
PRODUCTS THAT HELP URINARY INCONTINENCE
Until recently, incontinence solutions were pretty well limited to incontinence pads, which provide a degree of absorbent protection similar to sanitary pads. Manufactured with a synthetic polymer fabric, these pads serve to rapidly absorb. A chemical-based gel also helps to draw moisture from the outer to inner layers, to keep both the wearer (and their clothes) dry. The gel also helps to eliminate odor and relieves the associated discomfort. In addition to that, the top layer is chemically treated to neutralize vaginal skin’s pH level, and thereby reduces the risk of infection. Incontinence pads can be used for discreet daytime protection against involuntary urine leakage. There are also lightweight bladder control pads, which can provide temporary peace of mind with maximum absorption, restricted odors and minimum visibility.
Another popular option for mild urinary incontinence (typically attributed to sneezing, coughing or laughing) is protective underwear for women. With a design similar to women’s high-waist panties, the protective underwear has breathable fabric, protective core and rapid lock system to ensure maximum dryness. These are suitable for people who can move independently and have mild incontinence.
For people with high incontinency but limited mobility, such as bed-ridden patients, fitted briefs are available. Frequently deemed adult diapers, they are essentially adjustable briefs and are functional for people of all sizes. Designed to be functional, as well as effective, fitted briefs incorporate the benefits of both protective underwear and incontinence pads.
THE PROBLEM AREA
The problem with the aforementioned incontinency solutions is that while these solutions may mask the problem, they do not help improve the medical condition. There is also a chance of infection on the internal vaginal wall and, on occasion, the skin can react with the gel to cause dermal allergies.
Revolutionary Treatment – ThermiVa
ThermiVa has proven to be a revolutionary treatment, not only for urinary incontinence, but also for vaginal dryness, atrophy, orgasmic dysfunction and stress incontinence. ThermiVa works via heat and moisture management mechanisms to rejuvenate the health of the labia, as well as the vulvar and vaginal tissues. The non-invasive and painless procedure is effectively conducted in three 30-minute sessions. Each session is repeated in the following month. One round of treatment provides effective vaginal rejuvenation for nine to twelve months.
Why many doctors are recommending ThermiVA for a leaky bladder?
A leaky bladder isn’t only a source of physical discomfort, it also causes social embarrassment, a lack of confidence and poor experiences of intimacy. Many doctors have prioritized ThermiVa over other surgical solutions, cosmetic offerings, topical remedies, and laser treatments for urinary incontinence. ThermiVa is a painless, non-invasive procedure that heals the body rather than simply covering up the symptoms.
ThermiVa is also far more convenient and substantially more effective, both for the doctor and the patient. Its temperature-controlled, radio frequency technology stimulates the production of collagen. This helps to thicken the vaginal walls and treats itching, dryness, and inflammation naturally. It’s suitable for stress incontinence as well as vaginal rejuvenation and received a 100% satisfaction rate from patients struggling with vaginal incontinence. Patients are able to continue their daily routine immediately after the treatment.
WHY DOES THERMIVA HELP WITH LEAKING URINE (STRESS INCONTINENCE)?
Stress incontinence (i.e. leaky bladder syndrome) due to physical stress such as coughing, sneezing and laughing is a common problem among women struggling with poor bladder health. The episodes occur when a full bladder experiences some kind of unexpected physical stress. Leaking urine due to stress incontinence can be improved by increasing collagen in the surrounding tissues. For optimum results, Kegel exercises designed to improve the health of the pelvic floor muscle are suggested in tandem with the treatment.
BONUS – THE ASSOCIATED BENEFITS
ThermiVa is known as vaginal rejuvenation treatment and has been credited with improving the vaginal health of women both post-menopausal and after childbirth. It has successfully delivered the following benefits, in addition to successfully treating urinal incontinence.
Relief from Vaginal Dryness & Vaginal Atrophy
Vaginal dryness is more common among women who are aged 40 or more and are experiencing the menopausal or post-menopausal phase. Vaginal dryness may also occur due to hormonal imbalances or as an adverse effect in response to a variety of medications. This affects almost one in every three women worldwide. Even more common among women after menopause, vaginal atrophy is a condition in which walls of the vagina become thinner and lose the effects of elasticity. Burning, itching, irritability, and inflammation are all commonplace with vaginal atrophy. This also occurs due to low levels of estrogen.
Improved Orgasmic Function
Low estrogen is one of the primary causes of a poor sex life for women. Thinner vaginal walls resulting from the diminished supply results in painful intercourse, burning, inflammation or even damage to the vaginal tissues. ThermiVa stimulates estrogen production which revitalizes and thickens the vaginal walls, helping to relieve inflammation and eliminate burning sensations. By thickening the walls, ThermiVa helps tighten the vaginal cavity and enables pleasurable and pain-free intercourse.
ThermiVa is suitable for women who are addressing both post-childbirth as well as low-estrogen level complications. The treatment has also proven invaluable for women after chemotherapy for breast cancer as these patients cannot use estrogen medications. Various women treated for incontinence, orgasmic dysfunction, vaginal atrophy, and dryness have reported not only the capacity to experience intense orgasm but of an overall improvement in their sex lives.
