|Male Incontinence Treatment|
There are many different treatment options when it comes to male incontinence. Your doctor will determine which treatment option is best based on your health status, age, and the cause of the incontinence. Some of the available treatment options are-
- Medications-For some men prescription medications can successfully treat their incontinence symptoms. It is important to realize that some medications work for certain people and don’t work for others. You will need to be willing to explore your options with your doctor until you find the right medication to treat your incontinence symptoms. Your doctor will base the success rate of using prescription medications on what type of incontinence that you have and what the possible side effects will be.
- Behavior management-This type of therapy has been shown to be highly effective in reducing or even eliminating incontinence symptoms. Physical therapy, behavioral training and biofeedback all fall under this category. Your doctor will be able to guide you in which treatment option is right for you based on your health and type of incontinence.
- Surgery-This option is most often used when other treatment options have been exhausted, if there is a birth defect or physical problem that is causing the incontinence, or if the incontinence is extremely severe. Most doctors will only turn to surgery as a last resort and the success rate again will depend on what type of incontinence the man is experiencing.
