Alternatives to Vaginal Mesh for Bladder Leaks & Incontinence
Bladder leaks are frustrating and embarrassing, yet they happen to almost 40% of women either after vaginal childbirth or after menopause. Sadly – because of some dangerous and ineffective bladder procedures used by doctors in the past – many women avoid pursuing any treatment at all and just “live with” urinary incontinence.
The great news is that there are now non-surgical, non-invasive bladder leak treatments that are 100% safe and highly effective!
The Dangers of Vaginal Mesh
If you own a television, you have no doubt seen the many attorneys’ commercials advertising for individuals who have had a trans-vaginal mesh implant. This mesh looks like a fishing net made of either metal, fiber or plastic. In the 1970s some gynecological surgeons started to use meshes to treat pelvic organ prolapse, as well as “stress urinary incontinence” (bladder leaks).
Because so many women suffer from urinary incontinence, over 100,000 procedures using transvaginal mesh were being performed in the United States every year. But women began to experience both mild and very serious complications from the mesh. And because the mesh is a permanent implant that literally becomes enveloped by the body tissue, it typically cannot be removed if complications occur.
As a result, the FDA now recommends that women and their doctors carefully consider other treatment options – and only use trans-vaginal mesh as a last resort.
Poor Vaginal Mesh Alternatives
Many doctors preach that weight loss and exercising, along with Kegel exercises, can help improve stress incontinence. But for Kegel exercises to be effective, they have to be done every day. And, we all know how hard losing weight can be – particularly after menopause.
Other undesirable options to treat stress urinary incontinence are also sometimes recommended, such as inserting an object into the vagina to physically hold the bladder – such as a “pessary” or “vaginal cone” or a surgically inserted sling (urethropexy). Electrical stimulation or biofeedback have also been tried, but require the insertion of electronic devices.
Radiofrequency the Best Alternative to Vaginal Mesh
Because of the newness of radiofrequency vaginal treatments for stress urinary incontinence, many doctors or gynecologists may simply not be familiar with this amazing technology yet.
The vagina, like the face, is made up of skin. And all types of skin rely on collagen for elasticity, tone and overall youthfulness. As we age, and as female hormone production decreases over time, the skin on the face and in the vagina loses its tightness, and becomes dry, and lax.
State of the art Geneveve radiofrequency technology stimulates the production of collagen in the vagina – “rejuvenating” the tissue to a more firm, plump, elastic and youthful state, with just one single treatment. This treatment not only improves sexual sensation and performance, but also stops or substantial reduces bladder leaks due to stress incontinence.
Before you agree to have any type of surgery, electronic device, or vaginal device inserted schedule a consultation to learn about non-surgical, non-invasive Geneveve radiofrequency treatment for bladder leaks (stress urinary incontinence.)
