Top Form Tuesday: Controlling Overactive Bladder Without Medication



Ready to be done with dealing with those overly frequent trips to the bathroom? Women at alny age may be suffering from this condition, but you may be one of the 1 out of 3 women over 40 who has overactive bladder (OAB). The primary symptom of OAB is a sudden urgency to urinate that is frequent and cannot be controlled. These uncontrollable urges to urinate no matter where you are or what you have been doing can sometimes lead to involuntary leakage of urine – accidental wetting. By definition if a woman urinates more than 8 times per day, or have strong, sudden urges to use the restroom frequently, you likely have OAB.  While simple bladder training, avoidance of caffeine and alcohol, early treatment of infections, and pacing liquid intake can help relieve symptoms. There are many oral medications, some injection medications, and some nerve treatments available. The most revolutionary to date, with the least side effects, complications, and no medication is the use of the MonaLisa laser therapy. MonaLisa therapy has mostly been used by women seeking a non-medical option for vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA) and menopausal symptoms; physicians are reporting excellent success for the treatment of various urinary complaints, especially OAB.
