Menopause, a natural stage in every woman’s life, signifies a time of significant transition. Among the myriad changes, both physical and emotional, is an often surprising development – urinary incontinence, a condition characterized by the loss of bladder control. It’s an issue that can greatly affect one’s quality of life, but proactive steps can make a significant difference.
Understanding Urinary Incontinence
Urinary incontinence varies in manifestation — from stress incontinence, involving leakage during physical exertion, to urge incontinence, marked by a sudden, intense urge to urinate, often leading to involuntary leakage. As women approach and enter the menopausal phase, this condition becomes increasingly prevalent.
Menopause, Peri-Menopause, and Urinary Incontinence
Menopause, along with the preceding peri-menopause phase, involves considerable hormonal fluctuations, particularly a decline in estrogen levels. This hormone is vital in maintaining the strength and health of the pelvic floor muscles, which support your bladder. Consequently, when estrogen levels drop, these muscles can weaken, contributing to urinary incontinence.
Here’s where proactive steps toward strengthening your pelvic floor come in.
Proactive Solutions for Menopause-Related Urinary Incontinence
Lifestyle modifications like diet control, bladder training, and pelvic floor exercises can help manage this condition. Actively incorporating these measures into your daily routine, especially during peri-menopause, can potentially help lessen the severity of urinary incontinence during menopause.
However, when these measures aren’t enough, it’s time to consider medical interventions. That’s where the Emsella Chair comes into the picture.
Meet the Emsella Chair
The Emsella Chair employs High-Intensity Focused Electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology, a non-invasive treatment aimed at stimulating and strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, thereby addressing the root cause of urinary incontinence. It’s a simple, innovative solution that allows you to remain fully clothed during the procedure, which involves sitting comfortably on the chair.
Benefits of the Emsella Chair for Peri-Menopausal and Menopausal Women
The Emsella Chair provides a range of advantages for women going through peri-menopause and menopause:
Proactive and Preventive: Starting Emsella treatment during peri-menopause can help proactively strengthen pelvic floor muscles, potentially mitigating the severity of urinary incontinence during menopause.
Non-Invasive and Non-Surgical: Emsella involves no surgery, providing a safer choice with no downtime.
Comfort and Convenience: The treatment is performed fully clothed and each session lasts only about 30 minutes, easily fitting into your schedule.
Effectiveness: Emsella induces thousands of potent muscle contractions, strengthening the pelvic floor muscles more effectively than voluntary contractions can achieve.
While many women have found relief with the Emsella Chair, it’s important to remember that individual results may vary, and professional consultation is crucial before starting any treatment.
