Non-surgical Treatment Treating urinary incontinence depends on the type of incontinence diagnosed as well as its severity. Lifestyle modification – your doctor may recommend lifestyle changes, such as avoiding alcohol and caffeine, losing weight or increasing your physical activity. Behavioral techniques: Biofeedback – to help gain awareness and control of pelvic floor muscles. Bladder training – delaying urination after you get the urge to go, or urinating, then waiting a few minutes and trying again. This can help you learn how to empty your bladder. Schedule toilet trips – going to the bathroom according to a schedule rather than waiting for the urge to go. Physical therapy – exercises to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles (e.g., Kegel exercises). Electrical stimulation – gentle stimulation may strengthen pelvis floor muscles. Medications: Anticholingergics – these medications calm overactive bladders and help with urge incontinence. Estrogen – Estrogen in the form of a vaginal cream or patch may help rejuvenate urethra and vaginal tissue. Imipramine – an antidepressant that may help those who suffer from both urge and stress incontinence. Dulozetime – an antidepressant that may help with stress incontinence. Medical devices: Urethral insert – a tampon like device that is used to prevent leaking urine during a certain activity, such as an aerobic activity. Pessary – a stiff ring inserted into the vagina the helps hold up the bladder to prevent leading urine.
