Read our patients testimonial regarding the FemiLift Treatment – which treats stress urinary incontinence, menopausal vaginal dryness and vaginal tightening.
“I am 40 years old, with two children, I have suffered from stress and urge incontinence my whole life, I was also a bed-wetter until I was 15 years old. I did the traditional alarm on the bed, keep a calendar of dry days, being woken to go to the bathroom several times a night which did nothing, I was eventually told I would grow out of it. As you can imagine being the smelly, withdrawn, overweight (due to no exercise) teenager who still wet her pants profoundly affected my confidence and my family were not supportive of this issue, like many others it was often seen as a problem caused by laziness and considered dirty.
Later in life I underwent a personal mission to fix this issue myself, I embarked on a “100 pelvic floor exercises” mission every morning and evening convinced this would help… it didn’t, I moved on to the various (expensive) devices available on the market including a pelvic floor trainer and an electric pelvic floor machine and targeted kegal exercise machines – all awkward to use and totally ineffective. Lastly, I tried physiotherapy, oh the joys of having a physiotherapist insert their fingers into you while asking you to “squeeze”, no surprisingly this didn’t help either.
At 40 I found myself a single mum, working a job where I was doing a lot of walking on uneven ground and suffering from various levels of irritation from the pads that I was using during working hours and for exercise, from mild itching to full blown rash and burning, and I was still leaking using maximum protection while exercising. I was time to consider surgery, I had been told it was an option but I was reluctant to undergo invasive surgery and I could not “afford” the recovery time in terms of work and childcare. I was searching the internet for any other solutions and came across laser surgery.
I read testimonials, I researched the process, I could not believe that this non-invasive, quick procedure could be the answer, I was sceptical to say the least, and concerned about the cost, but I was willing to give it a shot before committing to surgery. I was not disappointed, the first treatment took around ten minutes, the treatment was for the most part not too painful and there were no side effects afterwards. Although I was warned that I was not likely to see results after the first treatment, there was a noticeable improvement, albeit slight. Following the second treatment there was more improvement, I was using a normal sized pad for exercising, not a huge bulky one and I was leaking around 50% less than before. After the third treatment, and for the first time in my life, I ran to catch a train without any leaking at all. I was getting through the day with just a normal panty liner and the best part was the change to how I was feeling about myself, not constantly worrying that I was smelly, or that people could see I had leaked at training, no more making up excuses about why I couldn’t participate in the running anymore. I had a race with my son, chased them both all over the park without having to make excuses to go or stop playing.
I am not one hundred per cent rid of this problem but I would say I am 85% there, and it is totally manageable now. I’m hopeful that there will be continued improvement over the coming months. This treatment has changed my life in so many positive ways, I wish this had have been available to me so many years ago. Another surprising benefit of this treatment has been an improvement in my sex life, things are noticeably better, not only because I don’t leak urine every time I have sex but there has been an improvement in the tightening of muscles in the area generally and this has lead to a more intimate and enjoyable sex life, I feel more confident, able to relax and more sensitive which has been amazing. I can’t recommend this treatment enough for any woman suffering from incontinence, give this a try it’s a simple, quick treatment with no side effects and great results.”
