A Woman’s Guide to Urinary Incontinence

DDUrinary incontinence isn’t talked about enough. Perhaps it is because women confuse urine leakage for “accidents,” that are not technically a medical issue. However, urinary incontinence is a diagnosable medical condition – one that can make daily life difficult and frustrating.


Women who suffer from urinary incontinence may experience leakage during exercise, laughing, or coughing. If you ever face a strong urge to urinate during sexual activity or from hearing running water, you may also struggle with urinary incontinence.

Treatment for Urinary Incontinence

Fortunately, urinary incontinence is a very treatable condition. The problem is that the people who suffer from it are too embarrassed to get help or don’t know that there is a solution. Harrington + Associates Plastic Surgery treats urinary incontinence with a treatment called Viveve®.


Viveve® uses radio-frequency technology to stimulate collagen production in the vagina, resulting in thicker, tighter vaginal walls that give you more control over your body and greatly reduces the occurrences of leakage.*

Facts about Urinary Incontinence

  • Women report bladder leakage during sexual activity and exercise while sleeping, sneezing or coughing and after drinking water or hearing sounds of water running (or something similar).
  • The vast majority of women can get sufficient help with their incontinence via the Viveve® treatment.*
  • Surgery should be a last resort after vaginal rejuvenation methods have failed.
  • While trying to manage your UI symptoms steer clear of alcohol, which can make you feel worse.
  • If you’re experiencing blood in your urine coupled with or in addition to pelvic pain, you may have a more serious condition that needs medical attention.
