With age, the human body's muscles weaken and become flabby, and bladder, a hollow muscular organ is no exception. He loses elasticity and no longer holds a sufficient amount of urine. But in women after 40-50 years due to hormonal changes atrophic changes also cover the urethra and vagina, so they are more likely to suffer from the age of urinary incontinence. When menopause due to lack of estrogen:

  • urethral walls become flabby by lowering their tone and can not provide additional support to the bladder;
  • the vaginal walls become thinner, too, but his weakened muscles supporting the urethra and worse.

The risk of losing control over urination during menopause is higher in obese women and many mothers who gave birth naturally. Due to pregnancy and childbirth the pelvic muscles that surround and support the urethra, vagina, rectum, stretch and become less elastic. Other risk factors are:

  • infection (inflammation of the bladder becomes excessively irritable and prone to spazmaticheckim abbreviations);

However, you can discuss with your doctor the possibility of minimally invasive surgical procedures for the treatment of urge incontinence.

What should I consider?

Before you choose a method of operation, it is necessary to consult a doctor and make an accurate diagnosis. To do this you will need to pass a series of examinations.

If you plan to have children, the doctor will also recommend to refrain from surgery until you give birth to a child. Pregnancy and childbirth can neutralize the effect of the treatment.

Unfortunately, surgery can not help one hundred percent of the time. If you are suffering from mixed urinary incontinence, surgery will correct the symptoms of stress incontinence, urgency but will remain so after the surgery, you will need additional treatment (medications, bladder training, etc.). If incontinence is caused by damage to the nerves or muscles of the pelvic floor, surgery is not always able to completely rid you of the symptoms, the operation will ease the symptoms, but will not restore the damaged muscles and nerves.

Any surgery involves risks and possible complications. The operation can lead to urinary problems:

  • Difficulty urinating,
  • Incomplete emptying of the bladder,
  • Development of overactive bladder,
  • Prolapse of pelvic organs,
  • Infection of the urinary system,
  • Damage to the pelvic organs,
  • Difficult or painful sexual intercourse.

Before the surgery, you will be able to discuss these issues with your doctor.

Climax provokes and other abnormalities in women who make it possible incontinence.

The state of the urinary organs are recognized factors as:

Decrease in muscle tone. The pelvic floor muscles, lose their elasticity, are not capable as before to control urination. Such a state of muscle tissue does not only affect urination. Internal organs located in the pelvis, change their location. The uterus and vagina down and begin to put pressure on the urine, which causes his irritation at the slightest filling. It weakens and intestine that provokes frequent or involuntary discharge of gases. Therefore, comprehensive treatment always includes exercises to strengthen these muscles.

    Rigid walls of the bladder during climax respond to any irritation
  2. Changes in tissue structure bladder. suffers himself uric due to loss of elasticity. Its walls become more stringent, not able to stretch. At the climax of uric becomes hyperactive, that is sensitive to the slightest irritation. In fact, there is an involuntary discharge of urine even when filled with urine, even in part. This explains the frequent visits to the toilet.
  3. Overweight. The appearance of extra kilos - a common occurrence during menopause. By the way the negative effects of obesity align and urination problems as under the pressure of his pelvic floor muscles experience increased load.
  4. Dryness of mucous membranes. Against the backdrop of fading of the reproductive function is reduced secretion synthesis.
