Treatments for Female Incontinence

Your Treatment Begins Here

Don't live another minute trying to ignore incontinence. It's time to see a Spectrum Health urogynecologist. We understand your frustration, so let's talk. Urogynecologists have been specifically trained to understand and treat women's incontinence and related issues. There can be cause and effect scenarios and related reproductive health issues that play into incontinence. Great doctors who haven't specialized in both urinary and reproductive health can understandably be unaware of certain factors. 

From stress incontinence to loss of bladder control after pelvic surgery or childbirth, we can help. There are many effective options to improve or end your incontinence. Let's find the treatment that's best for you, starting here.

Treatments We Provide

  • Incontinence Medicine

    Oral medicines can block the urge to urinate or enable the bladder to hold more urine. Topical medications strengthen tissue in the urinary tract.

  • Kegel Exercises

    Kegels are exercises designed to prevent incontinence. You can strengthen the muscles of the pelvic floor with a simple squeeze-and-release movement.

  • Sacral Nerve Stimulation

    An implanted device (InterStim®) is used to stimulate the sacral nerve, just above the tailbone. This nerve activates the muscles and organs that control the bladder.

  • Surgery for Incontinence

    This minimally invasive surgery uses tension-free vaginal tape to support a sagging urethra, and prevents accidental urine leakage when you cough or move vigorously.
