Bulkamid for Urinary Incontinence

Bulkamid Injections in Denver

Urinary incontinence is a common issue for many women. The lack of bladder control can manifest as several different types. Stress urinary incontinence describes bladder leaks that occur during everyday activities, such as exercise or even laughing.

With the Women’s Health Group, you don’t have to fear bladder leaks. Bulkamid, a minimally invasive urethral bulking procedure, is a revolutionary treatment for stress urinary incontinence that can eliminate leaks and accidents.

What Is Urethral Bulking?

Urethral bulking is a minimally invasive treatment option for stress urinary incontinence. The procedure uses a small amount of material at the level of the urethral sphincter, reinforcing it and restoring continence so leakage no longer occurs.

Advantages of urethral bulking procedures such as Bulkamid include:

No incisions
Minimal recovery time
Less invasive
Highly effective
Long lasting

Signs and Symptoms of Urinary Incontinence

As you age, you are more likely to develop urinary incontinence, which can cause inconvenience and embarrassment. It can also occur after pregnancy and menopause.

If you are experiencing bladder leaks, it’s important to talk to your doctor despite any discomfort you may feel. We can help you identify the type of incontinence you have, which will help us decide on the best course of treatment. Bulkamid is recommended for stress urinary incontinence, where leaks occur during normal daily activities.

With stress urinary incontinence, you may leak urine when:

  • Coughing
  • Sneezing
  • Laughing
  • Exercising
  • Walking

How Bulkamid Works

Bulkamid is a urethral bulking agent that gives patients a way to relieve stress urinary incontinence without invasive surgery. The procedure uses a smooth, water-based gel that the doctor injects into the wall of your urethra. The gel remains in your body over time without irritating the surrounding tissue.

The procedure only takes about 10-15 minutes and consists of 3 to 4 injections into the wall of the urethra. Bulkamid works by adding additional volume to the wall of the urethra, helping to prevent urine from leaking out of the bladder during normal daily activities.

What are the causes of urinary incontinence?
Chronic, persistent urinary incontinence can have many causes. Hormonal changes associated with pregnancy or menopause can make incontinence more likely. The weakening of muscles due to childbirth or age can also play a role. Recent increases in urinary incontinence prevalence may be related to population aging and increasing obesity prevalence. Age greater than 70 years, body mass index >40, and vaginal birth have the strongest association with Urinary Incontinence. Learn more here
