What is electrical stimulation of the pelvic floor?
Electrical stimulation of the pelvic floor is a painless and effective procedure that treats urinary incontinence, frequency, urgency, and other medical conditions.
During pelvic floor electrical stimulation, a low-grade electrical current (similar to “TENS” units used in physical therapy) stimulates the muscles to contract to create a muscular response similar to Kegels (an exercise for your pelvic floor muscles). This movement strengthens your pelvic floor muscles, improving urinary frequency, urgency, and incontinence and increasing the strength of the pelvic floor and vaginal muscles.
Electrical stimulation involves inserting a tiny probe into the vagina (the size of a small tampon), which emits a very low-grade, safe electrical signal to excite a set of nerves or muscles for a session of 20 to 30 minutes. This simple and effective office therapy is FDA-approved and covered by most insurance companies.
Why it's done
Electrical stimulation of the pelvic floor is typically used for women who experience urinary frequency, urgency or incontinence due to an overactive bladder condition. It is also used to help pelvic floor strengthening in women with weak vaginal muscle tone.
Your physician may recommend electrical stimulation if you have any of the following conditions:
- Incontinence due to an overactive bladder
- Urinary frequency and urgency
- Weak pelvic floor muscles
- Weak anal sphincter muscles
Electrical stimulation/neuromodulation may be able to help a range of pelvic floor dysfunctions
- Stress urinary incontinence
- Urge urinary incontinence
- Bladder urgency
- Faecal incontinence
- Faecal urgency
- Pelvic pain
- Painful sex
- Period pain
- Pelvic pain of any origin
