Urinary incontinence or loss of urine issues are common among women. Despite the prevalence of SUI and its accompanying embarrassment and diminished quality of life, many women who experience symptoms do not seek medical treatment and feel embarrassed to discuss their symptoms with their family members and friends due to embarrassment, lack of knowledge or fear that the treatment will require surgery. There is no need to feel embarrassed.
Women usually suffered urinary incontinence or common leakage while laughing, coughing or sneezing. Many women report they suffer when trying to get to a bathroom or during exercise. As we know, exercise is something that is very health-promoting. To have something like urinary incontinence, that limits exercise, is problematic.
After studies and survey, it is found that women who are suffering silently with SUI often have significant emotional stress regarding this condition. They commonly worry that it’s gonna get worse with time and most of them are concern about embarrassment, they worry that they might have an accident when they’re out in public or in office and what to do about that. Sometimes they actually limit going and doing activities because of fears regarding their urinary continence.
There are probably several reasons why women may not choose to bring up their urinary incontinence with a doctor. We think one reason is they feel like it’s a normal part of ageing, that they just have to deal with. Another reason is they might feel that it can be treated only by surgery, which is a bit difficult and it also provides less relief. I think for some patients, it’s really a difficult issue to bring up themselves. they might not be aware of all of the treatment options that are out there.
An important take away for women with urinary incontinence is to know that this is not something to be ashamed of, it’s not something that they have to be embarrassed about, it’s very common and that there are very good treatments we offer for SUI. We at Laserwell would encourage them to initiate that conversation with us so that they can get the treatment that they need.
