While childbirth can be rewarding, an arduous labor and delivery can leave you not only exhausted, but with embarrassing symptoms as well. Urinary incontinence is a common post-delivery concern and is due to weakened pelvic floor muscles.
ThermiVa, FDA-approved for electrocoagulation and hemostasis, but used in the vagina to help rebuild collagen and support to the pelvic floor, is a quick and convenient option for improving symptoms of incontinence postpartum. It utilizes controlled radio frequency technology to heat target tissue and stimulate collagen production.
Many women report decreased urinary urgency and increased natural lubrication after three ThermiVa sessions. Dr. Sodhi has seen great results with this technology and recommends it to many patients for use by itself or in conjunction with another therapy
ThermiVa can be used as early as 6 weeks after delivery. There are no adverse effects reported for nursing mothers using controlled radiofrequency technology in the vulvogenital area. A single ThermiVa session takes between thirty to forty-five minutes, and typically 3 consecutive treatments are recommended.
