Urge Incontinence

What is urge incontinence?
 
Urge incontinence is when you get an urgent desire to pass urine and sometimes urine leaks before you have time to get to the toilet. It is usually due to an 'overactive bladder'. If you have urgency or urge incontinence, you also tend to pass urine more often than normal (this is called 'frequency'). Sometimes this is several times during the night as well as many times during the day. Some women also find that they leak urine during sex, especially during orgasm. Urge incontinence is the second most common form of incontinence.
 

What causes urge incontinence? 

Urge incontinence is caused by the bladder sending a message to the brain that it's full, often too early and the bladder muscle starts to contract too early (also called bladder or detrusor instability).
This may be caused by cystitis (urinary infection) or an overactive or unstable bladder (when there's an increased frequency of going to pass urine during the day and having to get up at night to urinate (nocturia), which can sometimes be related to nerve problems including  stroke, dementia, multiple sclerosis and spinal cord injury.
 
How does continence stimulation help?
 

Pelvic floor stimulation is a non-invasive treatment. In the case of urge incontinence pelvic floor stimulations inhibit inappropriate bladder contractions. The lowfrequency signals calm and soothe the over-excited nerves that cause Urge incontinence. PFS has no side-effects, always exercises the right muscles and does not require active patient participation.

Numerous studies have reported that 70% of patients are either improved or cured using PFS.

Using itouch Sure can soothe the overexcited nerves that cause Urge incontinence. Results can be seen from as little as two weeks treatment
