Incontinence, also called stress urinary incontinence (SUI), is a condition where bladder leaks may occur during normal activities like sneezing, coughing, exercising, or laughing. Incontinence is more common than you may think, affecting 1 out of every 3 women during their lifetimes. Some causes of incontinence include aging, some types of childbirth, and obesity.
While physical therapy to strengthen the pelvic floor can help stop leaks, some women need to seek additional surgical treatments. Many of these treatments require hospitalization and raise concerns about long-term patient safety, but the revolutionary treatment Bulkamid is quick, safe, and highly effective.

What is Bulkamid?
Bulkamid is a urethral bulking agent that can treat incontinence. The bulking agent is a gel consisting of 97.5% water and 2.5% polyacrylamide that helps to restore the natural closing of the urethra. This gel adds volume to the urethral wall, mitigating or eliminating leakage that may occur when pressure is placed on the bladder. The procedure to inject Bulkamid can take as little as five minutes and requires no hospital stay—meaning your drive to the hospital might take longer than the procedure itself!
