What Causes Urinary Incontinence?
There are a few different forms of incontinence, including stress urinary incontinence. This is when an individual experiences leaking when coughing or straining in some way. After giving birth, the pelvic floor muscles become weakened, which results in loss of bladder control. EMSELLA™ is a great option for this form of incontinence.
Incontinence that is experienced by men is usual due to procedures such as radial prostatectomy. If the individual has undergone radiation therapy, then EMSELLA™ may not be a good option to treat incontinence. If you are experiencing incontinence, our professionals can work with you to determine if EMSELLA™ would be a good treatment option for you.
