Urinary Incontinence Q & A

What is urinary incontinence?

Urinary incontinence causes sudden urine release when you're not trying to urinate. The main types of urinary incontinence are as follows:

Stress incontinence

With stress incontinence, you leak urine when sneezing, coughing, or other stressors put pressure on the bladder.

Urge incontinence

When you have urge incontinence, urine leaks out after a sudden urge to urinate, and you don’t have enough time to reach the toilet.

Overflow incontinence

With overflow incontinence, urine leaks out because your bladder never entirely empties.

Functional incontinence

In functional incontinence, urine leakage is tied to health issues or medications.

What kind of urinary incontinence is most common?

Stress incontinence is the most common kind of urinary incontinence, especially among women. This type affects women of all ages but is most common during and after pregnancy and during menopause.

How does Dr. Lori diagnose urinary incontinence?

Dr. Lori discusses your symptoms and medical history to form a preliminary diagnosis. Expect to answer questions about:

  • Frequency of urination and accidents
  • Amount of urine leaked during accidents
  • Current and past medications
  • History of pregnancies

Next, Dr. Lori performs a pelvic exam and testing to confirm the preliminary diagnosis. Depending on your needs, testing may include:

  • Urine test
  • Abdominal ultrasound
  • Bladder stress test
  • Cystoscopy
  • Urodynamic testing

How is urinary incontinence treated?

Treatment for urinary incontinence depends on the type and your specific case. Dr. Lori treats the vast majority of urinary incontinence cases successfully with conservative noninvasive methods. In many cases, she recommends TempSure Vitalia or the bladder sling.

How does TempSure Vitalia treatment for urinary incontinence work?

Dr. Lori treats urinary incontinence with TempSure Vitalia at her practice, Caring for Women's Health. This innovative treatment rejuvenates your pelvic floor muscles and improves your ability to control urination.

During this treatment, you lay down comfortably, just like for your annual pelvic exam. Then, to encourage new collagen and elastin growth, Dr. Lori gently inserts the treatment device, a radiofrequency probe, inside the vaginal canal.

What is a bladder sling?

Dr. Lori may recommend bladder sling surgery to prevent urine leaks, particularly for stress incontinence.


To perform this surgery, Dr. Lori first creates a sling from either your body tissues or synthetic materials. Next, she attaches the sling below your urethra and bladder, where it acts as a supportive structure.
