Bladder Control Q & A

What is bladder control?

Bladder control refers to treatments for urinary incontinence or the involuntary leakage of urine. Incontinence can affect anyone, but it’s most common in middle-aged and post-menopausal women. If you regularly have accidents or experience difficulty making it to the bathroom in time, contact Femhealth Group, LLC immediately.

What types of incontinence benefit from bladder control?

Femhealth Group, LLC recommends bladder control to treat various types of incontinence.

  • Stress incontinence: Involuntary leakage caused by excess pressure, like coughing.
  • Urge incontinence: A sudden, intense urge to urinate, followed by a void.
  • Overflow incontinence: Leakage that occurs because the bladder can’t empty.
  • Functional incontinence: Accidents that occur when you’re unable to reach the bathroom in time.
  • Mixed incontinence: A combination of two types of incontinence.

If you regularly experience bladder issues, it’s important to seek treatment. Femhealth Group, LLC can make recommendations to reduce uncomfortable symptoms and help you feel better.

When should I see an OB/GYN about bladder control?

Make an appointment with Dr. Martinez and the Femhealth Group, LLC team for bladder control if you experience urinary incontinence frequently and it interferes with your quality of life. That’s especially true if your symptoms cause you to restrict your activities, limit your social interactions, or point to a more serious underlying health problem. 

What happens during a bladder control visit?

A bladder control visit at Femhealth Group, LLC begins with a review of your medical history and a discussion of your symptoms, including when they first started, if they’re worse after drinking certain beverages, like coffee or alcohol, and whether they occur alongside other symptoms, like pelvic pain.

Next, your provider conducts a physical exam. They also order lab tests, like urinalysis. Next, they conduct a postvoid residual measurement. 

During this test, you urinate (void) into a container. Then, your provider conducts an ultrasound of your bladder. If there’s a significant amount of urine in your bladder after you void, it may indicate an obstruction or a problem with your muscles and nerves.

After determining the type of urinary incontinence you have, Femhealth Group, LLC makes treatment recommendations.

What does bladder control involve?

Femhealth Group, LLC tailors bladder control to your health history and needs. Your provider might recommend:

  • Bladder training
  • Double voiding (a technique to empty your bladder more completely)
  • Scheduled toilet trips
  • Fluid and diet management
  • Pelvic floor exercises (Kegels)
  • Prescription medication
  • Electrical stimulation
  • Urethral insert
  • Pessary
  • Botox® injections

If non-invasive treatments don’t provide lasting relief, your provider might recommend surgery.
