I suffer from mild stress incontinence when I do strenuous exercise what do you recommend

We woud recommend the following home treatments to help with stress incontinence:-

  • Pelvic floor muscle exercises. Called Kegel exercises, these movements strengthen your pelvic floor muscles and  improve your urinary sphincter control
  • Reduce Fluid consumption prior to exercise
  • Healthy lifestyle changes. Including weight loss…
  • Bladder training. Increasing the time in-between voiding helps increase bladder control.

A course of BTL Exilis has been shown to improve stress incontinence alongside the above measures

I am 53 years old and have had two children lately I have a sense of feeling that my vagina is not as tight as it was when I was younger

Childbirth unfortunately has the effect of stretching the vaginal walls and although the vaginal lining is quite elastic as we age it doesn’t quite spring back as we would like. A course of BTL Exilis has been shown to improve the Lamina Propria inside the vaginal tissue, increasing the elasticity and general tightness. Most of our ladies notice a difference after even their first treatment.

I have a lack of sensation during sexual intercourse

The lack of sensation is often due to the laxity of the vagina, if you can improve the tissue integrity the vaginal wall is brought into closer proximity to the penis giving a more heightened sensation. Improved tissue leads to improved secretions and a more pleasurable experience.

I do not have orgasms as regularly as I used to and the sensation seems less during intercourse

As above, also when the vagina is dry the ear of pain has a negative impact on the psychological element of sex… Is it going o hurt me? Then leads to reduced desire and secretions and the spiral worsens. Correcting vaginal dryness and this fear often helps with orgasm.
