The Best Non-Invasive Treatment to Prevent Urinary Incontinence

You have an active lifestyle, and you don’t have time for interruptions. Unfortunately, urinary incontinence is a common problem for women. According to Dr. Shirin Lakhani from Elite Aesthetics, “30% of people in their 20s and 30s experience some form of urinary incontinence.”[1] It’s a women’s problem that needs to be talked about more because it can strike unplanned and unexpectedly.

According to Women’s Health Magazine, urinary incontinence comes in four forms: stress, urge, mixed, and overflow. Stress incontinence comes from strenuous activity or sudden pressure on the abdomen, anywhere from a sneeze to a Crossfit workout. Urge incontinence is when you have a sudden urge to go to the bathroom, but you leak if you don’t make it, “even if your bladder isn’t full”.[1] Mixed incontinence is combination of stress and urge. A rarer but equally important case, overflow incontinence arises when you can’t register that your bladder is full because of a neurological condition.

Fortunately, there are several non-invasive solutions available, such as the O Shot, that prevent surprise incontinence for months at a time with high success rates. Dr. Kress offers the O Shot, which is a series of “platelet-rich plasma injections into the anterior vaginal wall and clitoris,” which  “help to regenerate the supportive tissue” of the vagina.[1] According to Women’s Health Magazine, the O shot succeeds “85-90% of the time,…lasting for more than one year” per treatment.[1]
