ELITONE® for Stress Urinary Incontinence
What ELITONE Does
Is postpartum incontinence normal?
Unfortunately… Yes. As muscles heal most women have to deal with some incontinence. What’s important is knowing that the incontinence should not be permanent and that there are treatments to restore your pelvic floor health.
Will postpartum incontinence go away on its own?
Pelvic floor muscles will often recover. But whether it recovers completely depends on many factors: the muscle tone pre-birth, the trauma to the pelvic floor muscles during birth, and mother’s age among others. Even if postpartum incontinence goes away, if the pelvic floor muscles are not exercised consistently and correctly, there may be more likelihood of incontinence down the line.
When should I start treating my postpartum incontinence?
You’ll want to consult your healthcare provider to determine when is best for your situation. Most women can start treating with ELITONE as early as 6-weeks postpartum.
Why should I use ELITONE
ELITONE is completely non-invasive, meaning nothing gets inserted vaginally. That’s reason enough for most new moms. The design also allows you to do other things (like caring for that new baby) while getting treatment. Since the device can help you do the exercises longer and stronger than you could on your own, it may help speed the recovery process.
