What Is Urinary Incontinence?
Also known as involuntary urination, Urinary Incontinence is the unintentional passing of urine. It is also commonly referred to as ‘loss of bladder control’. This condition can be embarrassing at times, and is often faced by expecting mothers during pregnancy. The severity of this condition can either range from a few drops of urine leakage while sneezing or coughing to an uncontrollable urge to urinate without being able to get to a toilet in time. While both, men and women can be affected with this condition, it is more commonly seen in females.

Our healthcare experts at Apollo Cradle strongly suggest that you take a few simple measures to improve the symptoms of the condition being faced. Improvement can be made, either by changing your lifestyle, losing weight, pelvic floor exercises or even bladder training. According to your case history, there are also certain forms of medications that may be prescribed by our consultants.
In cases where such measures fail to help, surgical procedures can also be suggested for effective Urinary Incontinence treatment. Treatment for frequent urination that our healthcare experts may recommend include a sling procedure that reduces pressure on the bladder, surgery on the pelvic floor for prolapse, retropubic suspension or tension-free vaginal tape surgery.
