Platelet Rich Plasma for Urinary Incontinence


What are the different types of Urinary Incontinence?

Stress Urinary Incontinence

Stress incontinence (SI) is the most common type of incontinence suffered by women, especially older women. In addition, women who have given birth are more likely to have stress incontinence.

It is a weakening of the tissues that support the bladder or the muscles of the urethra, causing these women to pass some urine when she coughs, laughs, or sneezes. Leaks can also happen when a woman walks, runs, or exercises.

Urge Incontinence

Urge Incontinence is a leakage of urine caused by overactive bladder muscles that contract too often, or problems with the nerves that send signals to the bladder.
