Urinary Incontinence FAQ

There are 2 main categories of incontinence


  • Leakage of small amounts of urine due to an increase in abdominal pressure caused by other body reactions or activities, such as sneezing, laughing, lifting or coughing.
  • Is due to a loss of support from the urethra. It is commonly observed as a consequence of damage to pelvic support structures that occur during childbirth or trauma.


  • Dysfunction caused by uninhibited contractions of the detrusor (bladder) muscle. When these contractions occur, the bladder leaks large amounts of urine and often does not give you sufficient warning to get to the bathroom in time
  • Also, known as overactive bladder

Generally speaking, less invasive treatments are first line followed by more invasive options. Some strategies include

  • Behavioural – bladder retraining techniques
  • Pelvic floor exercises
  • Medications
  • Medical devices
  • Surgery

Any or all of these, may help you deal with incontinence but now the O-Shot® can be used to mend and strengthen urinary tissue and muscle and treat both types of incontinence. Platelet rich plasma(PRP) offers a simple and effective solution to female urinary incontinence. Let the power of emerging regenerative medical procedures work for you to solve this progressive condition. Any woman that struggles with urinary incontinence knows that it is one of those dreaded conditions of aging that you would rather never experience, and it is one that seems rather hopeless. But, you don’t have to suffer, you don’t have struggle – the O-Shot® treats urinary incontinence effectively.

Most women experience some form of relief from urinary incontinence in a week or two following the O-Shot® and improvement continues over several weeks. Successful results include the reduced or eliminated need for medications to treat urinary incontinence or a complete resolution of the condition.

Urinary incontinence symptoms tend to progress and get worse over time unless treated. It affects women of all ages, but is most prevalent among older women. You may find that you avoid activities and social settings for fear of embarrassing moments that you believe are beyond your control. Many women may even avoid sexual activity and exercise to reduce the risk of embarrassment.

Maintaining a healthy weight, routine physical activity and pelvic therapy has been shown to a positive impact on a woman’s bladder control. Combined with PRP treatments you can resolve your struggles with urinary incontinence – why wouldn’t you want treatment?

If you have been struggling with a leaky bladder  during physical activity, laughing or sneezing, schedule your O-Shot® consult with Dr. Kirshni Appanna today, and find out how you may benefit from an O-Shot® and to assess your suitability.
