Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) is when Urine leaks out with sudden pressure on the bladder and causing the sphincter muscles to open briefly, with mild SUI, pressure may be from sudden forceful activities, like exercise, sneezing, laughing or coughing. If your SUI is more severe you may also leak with less forceful activities standing up, walking or bending over. “Urinary accidents” like these can range from a few drops of urine to enough to soak through your clothes, leading to embarrassment and an obstacle in your social life.
At present, there is no medical management for SUI. laser therapy has been proven to bring relief in early stages of SUI and the patients do not have to undergo surgical procedures. Generally, 2 to 4 sittings are required, depending on the symptoms; however relief is evident from the first sitting itself.
