More women see doctors because of bladder infections that for almost any other reason. Incontinence, or involuntary urination, is a common ailment for older people–especially women–because the sphincter muscles that surround the urethra become gradually weaker with age. Women in menopause have declining
levels of estrogen which causes the mucosal lining (inner skin) the vagina and urethra to thin. Women are most likely to develop incontinence during pregnancy and child birth or after the hormonal changes of menopause because of weakened pelvic muscles. It is pretty common for pregnant women to get this, your bladder gets infected by bacteria, but if you let it go untreated it could move into your kidneys. Use of antibiotics have caused many women to end up with yeast infections, as the “good” bacteria are killed off along with the “bad” bacteria.
It would be beneficial for all young women to be taught pelvic floor as teenagers because of the effects it has on later sexual response, the benefits it has in terms of recuperation following childbirth and minimizing the likelihood of stress incontinence in later life. These exercises can also assist women who find they and their partners have lost sensation during sexual intercourse because of slack vaginal muscles, particularly after childbirth. Women polio survivors had nearly five times more difficulty holding urine than did men, reporting urgency, incontinence with a full bladder, stress incontinence and urine leakage. For women, emptying the bladder frequently, non-fatiguing Kegel exercises to strengthen pelvic floor muscles and medications that control the activity of the vagus nerve, such as Detrol, are very helpful in preventing leakage. Women are initially more receptive than men to IC, perhaps because they are familiar with the process of tampon insertion.
Overactive bladder is not normal or natural at any age, and it can be treated. In fact, some of the most important tools for diagnosing the cause of your bladder problems are not high tech at all, but rather an observant patient who reports his or her medical history and symptoms accurately and concisely, a physician who is both a good listener and a skilled medical detective, some basic tests such as a urinalysis to rule out a urinary tract infection, and a record of how your bladder works each day, called a bladder diary. Bladder problems are not exclusively a problem of older women.
A combination of treatments may greatly alleviate symptoms of overactive bladder and help you manage their impact on your daily life. With a growing array of treatments including new drugs becoming available, the trick now is to figure out which kind of bladder problem you have and sort out the risks and benefits of the treatments offered. And yet, treatments, including a recently approved drug with relatively few side effects, are available that can significantly reduce if not eliminate the distress, discomfort and inconvenience associated with an overactive bladder. Most surgical procedures should be considered irreversible and the decision to undergo this type of treatment should take into account many factors including patient mobility, support system, life expectancy, and response to alternative treatments.
