Tips to deal with Stress Incontinence

Written by Paul Hartmann

Stress incontinence is one of the two most common types of incontinence. Incontinence is a condition in which people usually lose control over their pelvic floor activities. Incontinence is mainly of two types, urinary and fecal incontinence. On the basis of the cause of incontinence, it can further be divided as stress incontinence, urge incontinence, functional, and overflow incontinence. In this post, we will discuss stress incontinence in detail.

Stress incontinence is a condition in which the affected person is no longer able to control his/her activities and can leak in any stress related activity like sneezing, coughing, or even laughing. Stress incontinence in women is mainly due to pregnancy. Women with more than one child are more likely to experience the incontinence issue. During pregnancy and childbirth, pelvic floor muscles get weakened, and this may lead to incontinence situation.

Let’s now discuss the way of dealing with stress incontinence situation. There are many treatments and other solutions to deal with incontinence situation. One such solution is the Kegel exercise. Kegel exercises are the best way to deal with stress incontinence. Many doctors and physicists have approved this method as a solution for incontinence. Kegel exercise focuses on the pelvic floor muscles that control our urinary system. It includes exercises to strengthen our pelvic floor muscles. Doing kegels is very simple, and you can easily do them by your own once you are familiar with the procedure. To know more about the Kegel exercises and the right way to do them, you should contact your doctor or physician.

Another method to deal with the stress incontinence is by increasing your controlling ability. That can be done with the practice. Kegel is also a good way to improve the controlling power of your bladder. Another way is to make a schedule for the use of bathroom. Suppose, you have made a schedule to use the bathroom once in an hour, you will have to try to control the urge until the time is reached. It will also help in keeping your bladder empty, as you will have to urinate even if you do not need to.

It is advised to make use of incontinence pads and adult diapers in the condition of stress incontinence. You do not know when will you leak and the use of a diaper will definitely protect you from any kind of embarrassment in public. In the case of stress incontinence, the amount if urine leaked each time is not much and an adult pad can easily absorb that much amount of urine and will protect you for a long time.

In most of the cases, stress incontinence can be resolved by following some basic Kegel exercises at home, but in some cases, incontinence can further increase after childbirth and exercises are no longer helping in dealing with it. In that case, you must take help of a doctor. There are many other advanced treatments and surgeries that can help recovering from the problem.
