In brief: Use the oldr more
Invasive and less successful surgeries or temporary collagen injections.
Lose weight and do pelvic floor therapy. Thin small strips of mesh are the gold standard for stress incontinence and the fda agrees its the pelvic floor meshes that are the problem for reconstructiin.

First, have testing to see if you actually have stress incontinence and urethral hypermobility. Try some Kegel exercises and consider some vaginal estrogen. There is a new procedure called Renessa that remodels the collagen without injections.

Mid urethral sling with a small strip of polypropylene or mesh is the best treatment for urinary stress incontinence. The gold standard.

In brief: Stress incontinence
Treatment of sui is only indicated when the patient feels something must be done.
I find that kegel exercises only help the mildest of leakage. Many older women who don't want incisional surgery, opt for peri-urethral bulking agents. Most healthy women do best with mid-urethral sling surgery which is minimally invasive.

In brief: There are other
options. Talk to your doctor about pelvic floor physical therapy.
Also some types of incontinence will respond to medication or bladder botox
