It’s a subject that is mostly associated with women. But it affects men too.
It may lead to loss of dignity, isolation & depression.
It affects sexuality & self-esteem.
Causes range from medical illness, medications, bladder irritants, prostate conditions, weak muscles, overactivity, constipation & answering every call.
No I’m not talking “booty” calls, no one will take one if you have this. You won’t make one either. It’s embarrassing.
You may need to do more laundry or do laundry. The condition costs you approximately $1200.00 annually.
I am talking about MALE URINARY INCONTINENCE.
The definition of urinary incontinence in men is the unintentional loss of urine.
Treatment depends on cause; conservative management like increasing water-based fluids, urge suppression, bladder retraining, treat constipation, condom catheters medications &/or Kegel exercises.
But medications have side effects. And most people report that Kegel exercises don’t work because they don’t know how to do them, don’t remember how to do them or forget how to do them.
The Kegel Throne or BTL Emsella approved by the FDA and Health Canada for leakage of urine in men and women does work. It increases pelvic floor muscle strength & improves blood flow through electro-magnotherapy delivering 11,200 Kegels in 28 minutes.
And you may get a better erection as a side effect. Can you think of any better benefit?
I get so many men presenting to my clinical practices in North Vancouver and Vancouver wanting treatment with the Kegel Throne for urinary incontinence after prostate cancer treatment.
But the Kegel Throne is contraindicated in men with a history of Prostate Cancer. For those men, I recommend the Cunningham Clamp by Bard. The Weisner is good too. They are the only two that have been proven to work. And, they are available on Amazon for $40.00
You don’t have to live with urinary incontinence guys! Get the help you deserve.
