You find out you’re expecting a baby, and you’re floored with joy. A tiny human being is growing inside of you, and there’s nothing more exciting than that.
As women we are blessed with this amazing superpower, but growing a baby takes a toll on your body in many ways. Some women struggle with weight loss after childbirth, stretch marks that don’t go away and many struggle with urinary incontinence.
We see all over social media posts encouraging women to embrace their bodies and their stretch marks, but no one talks about bladder leakage. I know it’s embarrassing for most women to talk about this, but postpartum urinary incontinence is real and it happens to a lot more women than you think.
We need to be more open and talk more about it. A lot of women are suffering in silence when there are now new devices that can help cure this problem. As with anything else, the more we talk about it, the more options we discover to treat our issues.
The best part is that we have ways to cure urinary incontinence without having to take medications. Why take medications when they’re not necessary? I am a strong believer that medications should be used when nothing else has worked or when it’s something that can ONLY be cured with medication. This is why having a doctor you trust and doing research is so important!
Now, let’s talk about the topic that we don’t hear much about: postpartum urinary incontinence.
What is urinary incontinence?
Simply put, it’s the loss of bladder control, and it’s estimated that ONE in THREE women experience some form of it.
Incontinence happens because your nerves, ligaments and pelvic floor muscles are overstretched or they were injured during childbirth and have stopped working properly.
There are different types of urinary incontinence, but today we’ll discuss the most common types of postpartum urinary incontinence.
Stress incontinence vs. Urge incontinence
Most postpartum urinary incontinence comes in two different ways:
- If you’re leaking urine when you sneeze, cough, run or laugh, it’s called stress incontinence.
- If you get the sudden urge to pee and leak before you get to the bathroom, it is called urge incontinence. This is caused by an overactive bladder; you can leak even if you bladder is nearly empty.
How long does postpartum urinary incontinence last?
It varies a lot. Some women suffer from urinary incontinence for just a few weeks post delivery, and others experience it for months – or even longer. If you’re experiencing this problem for more than a few weeks after birth and it’s getting in the way of your every day tasks, you should start proactively working on this issue.
Sometimes this problem shows up later in life. Five years after delivery, one-third to one-half of women report some degree of bladder leakage. Every woman is at-risk for urinary incontinence, but fortunately we can do something about it.
How to treat incontinence?
You will find the top recommendation is to do Kegel exercises. If they’re done properly they can minimize both stress and urge incontinence. However, not only do we have to make sure these are done properly and to actually remember to do them, sometimes women don’t see much progress with them.
There are also medications you can take, physical therapy and even surgery. You can learn about all the different types of treatment here. But why do invasive surgery or take medications when you can cure this problem by using a special device?
Today, I want to share with you a recent discovery I made: ApexM. This is a device that cures urinary incontinence, and it doesn’t require any medication. How awesome is that?
