As the general population of women matures, so do their medical needs. Stress incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine resulting from coughing, sneezing, laughing, standing and exercise. Although, for many women, these problems are minor; for others who have to wear and change pads on a daily basis, it negatively affects how they plan their social activities. Fortunately, advancing medical technology has made the solution quite simple. For straightforward cases of stress, an outpatient procedure called transvaginal taping or TVT can eliminate symptoms for 80% of affected women. To learn more, call Creekside OB/GYN today.
