Childbirth and aging mean changes in vaginal tone. For many women, this leads to stress incontinence, or loss of bladder control during physical activity.
Urine can leak when you run, jump, lift, and even laugh, cough, or sneeze. This can make everyday life — let alone going to the gym — feel like a chore.
Stress incontinence might also seem embarrassing. But while it’s not be widely acknowledged, this is an extremely common condition and nothing to be ashamed of.
You don’t have to live with it. An adjunct to Kegel exercises, Votiva stimulates vaginal tissue to improve internal support of the bladder. In one study, temperature-controlled radiofrequency eliminated stress incontinence for 70% of patients; treatment has no reported complications, and improvements held for as long as three months.2
