What is Stress Urinary Incontinence?

When you cough, sneeze, laugh, or exercise, you may experience stress urinary incontinence (SUI), which is when you leak pee when your abdominal pressure is elevated. The most typical kind of urine incontinence in women is SUI.

SUI can occur when the pelvic muscles and tissues that support the bladder and urethra deteriorate, allowing the bladder "neck" to descend during short bursts of physical activity.

The urethra's ability to effectively control urine flow may be affected by this fall. The sphincter muscle that regulates the urethra can also become weak, which might result in SUI.

Under normal conditions and when there is an increase in abdominal pressure, the weaker sphincter muscle is unable to stop the flow of urine.

Symptoms of Stress Urinary Incontinence

If you experience stress incontinence, you might pee when you:

  • Crackle or sneeze
  • Laugh
  • Bend down
  • lifting a heavy object
  • Exercise
  • having sex

Each time you perform one of these actions, you might not always leak pee. However, any activity that strains your bladder can increase the likelihood of involuntary pee leakage, especially if your bladder is full.

Causes and risk factors

Urinary incontinence can affect everyone, but twice as many AFABs suffer from it as persons born with male gender identity (AMAB). An estimated 50 percent of women over 65 develop stress incontinence.

Urinary incontinence, however, is not a typical aspect of ageing. It's an indication of a condition that can be resolved with the proper care.

The following are risk factors for stress incontinence:

  • conceiving and giving birth (particularly vaginal birth)
  • Menopause
  • damage to the lower back or pelvis's nerves
  • Obesity
  • hysterectomy and other forms of pelvic surgery
  • recurring cough
  • Diabetes
  • surgery for an enlarged prostate or prostate cancer (benign prostatic hyperplasia)
  • Pelvic prolapse

What is stem cell therapy?

The basic unit of the body is stem cells. All other cells with particular roles, such as blood cells, brain cells, heart muscle or bone cells, skin cells, etc., are developed from these cells.

Daughter cells are created when stem cells divide to produce additional cells, and this environment might be either inside the body or in a lab.

These daughter cells either develop into fresh stem cells or into specialized cells that serve a more narrow purpose, such as blood, brain, heart muscle, bone, etc.

How stem cell therapy work for Stress Urinary Incontinence

As an alternative to surgery, the use of stem cells to repair or replace weak or injured muscles has been proposed.

However, the majority of stem cell extraction methods need invasive procedures and frequently yield very few viable cells.

It is still unclear exactly how stem cells can retrain the body's cells. In addition to being rebuilt, the muscle also improved the pressure needed in the bladder before incontinence starts and quits and had correct connections to the nerves.

Diabetes and other conditions are already being treated in humans with stem cell treatment, and since Amniotic stem cells may offer a route for future stem cell therapy for people because they didn't appear to trigger an immune response or tumour development.
