In this era of rapid, scientific medical advances, we still live with the myth that urinary incontinence should be accepted as a normal part of aging. Urinary Incontinence, however, should not be considered a disease but rather a symptom or sign of an underlying problem.

                                                                                   Assessment of Urinary Continence

Urinary incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine per the urethra. Urinary incontinence may be caused by many variables. Some cases are easily diagnosed with a complete history and physical exam, while others require complex testing to determine the cause. However, urinary incontinence should not be considered a disease, but rather a symptom or sign of lower urinary tract dysfunction (6). Incontinence may result from a loss of bladder control or a lack of motivation or ability to perform toileting functions. Nocturia, urinary frequency, or urgency without actual urinary loss may also signal an underlying organic condition. Such conditions could be a bladder stone, bladder tumor or obstruction, which create symptoms of irritative voiding and therefore cause urinary frequency. Many patients will benefit from a urologic consultation. This consultation may include but not being limited to diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment options available to the incontinent patient. Some simple, commonly used, cost-effective evaluation tools and treatment options for urinary incontinent patients will be discussed for use in the office setting.

DOWN-THERE basics(Instructions):

If you are on a quest for fitter Love-Muscles the answer is KEGELS-the right kind of KEGELS. About 30 percent of women who do these exercises are doing them wrong.  One common mistake: relying on the thigh muscles instead of targeting the pelvic-floor muscles, which form a sort of hammock from your pubic bone to your tailbone, they help hold your Pelvic organs in place, are key in controlling urination and contract in a very feel-good way during orgasm.  You can’t be shy if you want to learn how to target these muscles correctly.

First, prop your hips upon a pillow, pull your knees up and look at your lady part with a small hand mirror. Try to squeeze the vaginal opening closed by pulling in and up.  Your perineum, the patch of skin between your vagina and anus-should appear to retract. (Pretend you are trying to stop from passing gas, or you can also try to clench your muscles as you are stopping the flow of urine).pretty-woman

Once you’ve got the hang of it, contract and hold for five seconds, then release.  Do this 10 times in a row, three times a day, each time in different position-standing, sitting, lying down,- to use slightly different muscle fibers.

All of our vaginal weights are amazing at perfecting these exercises as well as all of the vaginal balls, insert and hold in place while doing low impact activities like putting away the dishes or folding clothes.  Start out by using the lightest ones and then work your way up, by the end of the week you should be able to walk around, bend down and keep it in…  By keeping up with your KEGELS  you will be taking blessedly fewer trips to the bathroom. You should be able to pulse, hold and relax. All things a woman with strong healthy love muscles should be able to do.
