Sometimes you just look at someone else sneezing, and it happens – that annoying dribble. Or you don’t make it to the nearest bathroom.

It’s a serious quality of life issue for one out of three women. You’d love to ditch the pantyliners if you could, right?

Good news about resolving bladder issues

For our grandmothers, pessaries and bladder surgery were the only solutions. The good news is that for most women, there are easier and more effective solutions, and we’re here to get rid of the stigma surrounding women’s bladder issues and improve your quality of life at the same time.

Your days don’t need to be held hostage to the whims of your bladder. Urgency and leaks shouldn’t impact your lifestyle. Isn’t it time to confidently go on vacation again or to friends’ houses without worrying about having an accident or losing it when you laugh at someone’s joke?

Bladder Control Problems Affect 50% of Women

Nobody likes the term “incontinence.” In fact, many women who leak a bit now and then, or say “no thanks!” when the grandkids want to jump on a trampoline, or never pass up a bathroom opportunity don’t think they're incontinent. But they do have a problem, and they aren’t the only ones.

If you’re peri- or post-menopausal or have birthed a baby naturally, pretending you don’t leak urine or have pelvic floor issues is as silly as pretending you don’t color your hair. After polling our “over 50” clientele about bladder leakage, we estimate 75% of them have bladder control issues, yet the National Association for Continence statistic shows only 30% of these women have incontinence – ridiculously underreported. And many studies show that with age and especially after childbirth, urinary issues affect about 50% of the female population.

Truth time: are you having trouble holding it?

Yes, the severity and circumstances of bladder issues vary, but there’s one sure test – most women who have had vaginal births or hormonal fluctuations cannot jump on a trampoline and avoid the dribble. Maybe you haven't tried that lately, so here are a few more:

  • Are you struggling with accidental urination as a new mommy?
  • Do you plan your walks or runs around restroom availability?
  • Can you do jumping jacks without leaking?
  • Do you get up in the middle of the of the night to pee, and if so how many times?

Don’t be embarrassed – it’s normal. We promise.

If you're peri or post menopausal or have birthed a baby naturally, pretending you don’t leak urine or have pelvic floor issues is as silly as pretending you don't color your hair.

If going out is a struggle because the first thing you think about is where the bathrooms will be, you aren’t alone. So many women we treat often say, “I was beginning to think something was wrong with me” and are relieved when we tell them that about half the women we meet have one of these common bladder issues.

 

3 common bladder problems in women of all ages

SUI (stress urinary incontinence) is when the bladder leaks with changes in pressure because your urethra simply doesn't have support. You’ll know it’s SUI when you leak from changing positions, like going from lying down to sitting, or dribbling when you sneeze, cough, laugh, run, or jump.

UUI (urge urinary incontinence) is when you have a strong, sudden need to urinate and delaying it is impossible. Oftentimes the bladder spasms, and your entire bladder empties. Many women have a mixture or simply feel like they have to pee all the time.

  • Stress incontinence (SUI) happens when you strain – it could be lifting, jumping, even just a little sneeze or cough can cause leakage. AKA “the sneeze n’ pee.”
  • Urge incontinence (UUI) means “when you have to go, you have to go NOW!” Sometimes if you even think about a toilet, your bladder tries to empty.
  • Overactive Bladder Syndrome (OAB) is usually described as having to urinate very often, even though it's sometimes very small amounts. For some women, it’s almost a constant sensation of having to urinate that overwhelms daily life.

But actually, most women have overlapping symptoms – some combination of all 3 is typical.

Say goodbye to that strict timetable for bathroom breaks with modern medical treatments

Nonsurgical regenerative bladder treatments like MorpheusV, FormaV, PRF, and VTone dramatically decrease and sometimes eliminate bladder leaking after just 3 painless, no-downtime in-office sessions.

Each treatment uses a different form of energy to firm and tighten underlying tissue and stimulate new collagen, as well as strengthen and renew muscle function and pelvic floor strength.

You see, both childbirth and age-related hormonal changes cause vaginal atrophy, leading to weakened pelvic floor muscles and lost elasticity in women’s internal and external skin and tissues. The net result? More leaking, bathroom trips, and loss of bladder control.

Not only do these treatments restore vaginal volume, appearance, and sensation, they also significantly reduce or eliminate bladder leakage and urinary frequency or urgency (and there are some bedroom benefits too!) without surgery.

At RegenCen, we’re committed to making your life better.

We’re women. We understand. We’ve had these treatments ourselves, (ask us how our quality of life improved – we’re open books!) and we’ve performed over a thousand treatments.

It’s easy to get started. Consultations are complimentary in our Petoskey, Traverse City, and Naples locations with our female Physician Associates.
