bladder control women

Bayer discontinues controversial birth control Essure

"Pain in my joints, pain in my hands," Ervin said.

She said she had bloating so bad she looked heavily pregnant. She lost bowel and bladder control and had unrelenting migraines.

They're problems she and thousands of other women attribute to a permanent birth control insert called Essure. Manufacturer Bayer told WFAA one million units of Essure have been sold worldwide since 2002.

Gynecologist Ignacio Nunez, with Texas Health Arlington Memorial, said about 100 of his patients opted for it over the years, with no issues.

"Why was Essure so popular?" Nunez said. "Because they didn’t have to go to the operating room. They didn’t have to get put to sleep, and it was less expensive, quite frankly."

But Essure has also faced criticism. Its own web site warns about adverse effects, including uterus perforation and persistent pain. The FDA says on its web site that it's received nearly 27,000 reports about Essure, and Bayer says there are nearly 17,000 plaintiffs who've filed claims. To date, Bayer says 52 complaints have either been dismissed or significantly narrowed.

Women, is it uncommon for a woman to lose bladder control when she orgasms?

I'd like to know if I should see a physician or not. And it is definitely urine, not anything else.

There is a possibility you are ejaculating....if the G spot is stimulated you will ejaculate....look it up, don't take my word or it. I didn't believe it either, til it happened to me.

That should not be happening. See your Dr. to rule out any big issues first. (Better to be safe than sorry.) They will probably recommend Kegel exercises for you. 127557/Kegel-exercises-A-howto-guide-for

Definitely see a gynecologist. And not a stupid one (ladies, no one wants inexperience down there.) It sounds like you have Coital Incontinence. I think its treatable, but I'm not a doctor so don't take my word for it.

Women who have bladder control problems, would you rather take meds or have surgery to alleviate this problem?

I'm choosing the surgery option, this way (hopefully,) I won't have this problem after that and won't have to take medication for it.

it's really a personal choice but be sure to investigate both options before deciding.
Good luck!

i would NEVER result to surgery.
