Although urinary incontinence is a very common condition that affects women, it is not a frequent topic of discussion. A woman may even find it difficult to discuss this subject with her health care provider. Whether you live in Chicago or near New Buffalo, we encourage you stop trying to live with urinary incontinence and to talk with a member of our gynecologist team at Northwestern Women’s Health Associates, In our practice, patients find a listening ear and a wonderful resource through which solutions to improve quality of life can be found.

Urinary incontinence

Urinary incontinence is a condition that predominantly affects women, causing the involuntary leakage of urine. The loss of urine may be associated with a physical stressor, such as sneezing, laughing, or exercise. Some women experience incontinence during intercourse or for no clear reason.

Issues with bladder control may develop at any time and for a number of different reasons. The female body goes through several physiological changes throughout life. Weight gain, weight loss, pregnancy and childbirth, menopause, surgery, certain types of medication, and other factors may play a role in the proper retention of urine in the bladder.

Help for urinary continence is available in our Chicago OBGYN practice

The treatment of urinary incontinence revolves around the individual patient. At Northwestern Women’s Health Associates, we perform a comprehensive consultation and examination in order to determine the cause of incontinence. We discuss family history, medical history, lifestyle habits, symptoms, and other aspects of health that will give us insight into the most appropriate form of care. Our physicians have been providing gynecological care for many years and have a high level of compassion when treating distressing conditions such as incontinence.

Obtaining an accurate diagnosis through specific testing, your gynecologist can design a treatment protocol around your particular situation. The treatment for stress urinary incontinence may involve Kegel exercises aided by biofeedback. Non-surgical treatments may be recommended for urge incontinence and they may include lifestyle modification or prescription medication. Surgical solutions for incontinence, such as a mid-urethral sling, also exist and they may be discussed depending on the type and severity of the problem.

With the variety of treatment options available today, you are not on your own to manage the problem of urinary incontinence. Schedule your visit with Northwestern Women’s Health Associates,
