Involuntary urinary incontinence, which has become a social or hygienic problem, affects a person’s life significantly. Urinary incontinence is reported as an average of 20% in all age groups, and its incidence tends to increase with age. While it is 25-30% in the pre-menopausal period, it can increase up to 40%-50% in the post-menopausal periods, and up to 60%-70% in women in nursing homes. The main point to be noted here is; Although there is a disorder observed in one of every 3 women in the pre-menopausal period and in almost every 2 women in the post-menopausal period; The reason for this is that the rate of referral to a physician due to urinary incontinence is very low.
It is another remarkable fact that urinary incontinence significantly reduces the quality of life of women and sometimes makes their daily lives seriously difficult. Regardless of the period of a woman’s life, urinary incontinence should be considered as a health problem, necessary examinations and evaluations should be made, and treatment should be planned by revealing the underlying pathologies.
Stress urinary incontinence, which is the most common type of urinary incontinence, is defined as simultaneous urinary incontinence in cases of increased intra-abdominal pressure. In women; Urine leakage is observed during activities that increase intra-abdominal pressure such as coughing, laughing, sneezing, climbing stairs or straining. In the second observed type, urge incontinence, urinary incontinence is observed with the feeling of urgent urination but before reaching the toilet. The third type is called the mixed type where two types of pathology are together.
We can say that this disease, which can occur at almost any age due to different reasons, is an acceptable condition only for those under the age of 2 and above the age of 85, and that urinary incontinence is a disease that must be treated in other age groups.

HOW LASER URINARY INCONTINENCE TREATMENT IS DONE
It is a very important technological development that laser technology offers us. The vaginal canal is entered with the help of a probe and the entire canal is scanned 360 degrees. This technology stimulates the tissues with the photothermal effect, both triggering the formation of new collagen and providing regeneration in the existing collagen tissue. Thanks to these effects, the vaginal and pelvic tissues that support the bladder are tightened. Thus, the urinary retention functions of the woman return to normal. Thus, urinary incontinence is treated without surgery.
