Should I Have Urinary Incontinence at My Age?

Posted on

As health and young as women can be, they are still not an exception to the possibilities of urinary incontinence. Many factors come into play for this condition, but is there an age for urinary incontinence to occur? Defining an age might not be a possibility but at least you can identify the symptoms of urinary incontinence to look for when the condition does decide to hit you.

 

Urinary incontinence keeps many women from enjoying the pleasures in life, like laughing, due to the fear of leakage. It takes a hold on your life and will make you feel tied to a bathroom to avoid embarrassment. Women can stop living with this condition with a quick vaginal laser treatment.

What Is the Average Age for Urinary Incontinence?

As women age, many things change in their bodies. Some things are a normal part of aging, and other changes may require medical assistance. Read about how normal urinary incontinence is, and what you can do about it.

Is it normal to have urinary incontinence at my age?

One-third of women leak urine involuntarily. Although this is a large amount of women, it is not normal. No one should just lose control of their bladder. Some women suffer from stress incontinence, which means they leak a little urine when they cough, sneeze, laugh or jump.


With aging, many changes in the female body can cause this incontinence. Prolapse can push the bladder down, causing the frequent urge to urinate. Here are some more causes of urinary incontinence:

 

  • Birthing multiple children
  • Delivering a large baby
  • Pelvic trauma
  • Weight gain
  • Constipation

 

Others suffer from overactive incontinence, which causes the urgent need to urinate throughout the day. Many women suffer from combinations of both.

What to do for urinary incontinence

If you are suffering from urinary incontinence, see a doctor to request a pelvic tone exam. An exam like this will evaluate your pelvic floor muscles and determine the need for treatment. Your doctor will most likely recommend you do Kegel exercises, which train and tone the pelvic floor muscles. However, many of these treatments are not as permanent or fast as FemiLift.

 

Femilift is a vaginal rejuvenation procedure which uses an Alma CO2 laser probe to regenerate vaginal mucosa through thermal energy. The treatment leaves women with a tightening and lubricating effect. The process takes less than ten minutes, and many women can instantly feel the difference. Femilift is perfect for a solution for urinary incontinence and other vaginal issues.
