Female Incontinence surgery is a last resort to relieve damage and symptoms sustained from stress induced incontinence; more commonly known as overactive bladder. This surgery is intended for women that do not plan on becoming pregnant. Pregnancy can reverse the effects of the surgery,   so it is important to discuss any future pregnancies with a doctor. Before undergoing the producer it would be wise to see alternative methods of treatment.  There are two main types of surgeries that are practiced:  a sling procedure, and the second, known as a bladder neck suspension.

Both procedures may only help for stress induced incontinence. After receiving either of the procedures you might still feel the effects of urgency incontinence, but this can be managed with prescription medications. Consult your doctor if you are experiencing these symptoms after surgery to discuss treatments.

Less invasive procedures exist as an alternative to surgery, such as injecting bulking material. In this procedure a doctor will take material such as collagen or silicone and injects it surrounding the bladder providing structural support. Surgery could require later attention from your doctor, but not as often as non-surgery treatments. Non-surgery therapies could be needed as often as every six months.

Women suffering from bladder incontinence should discuss the severity with a doctor to determine if surgery is necessary. Discuss all other treatments that have already been tried. Surgery might be the best option for women that have tried alternative treatments but are still experiencing symptoms.
