"My patient is a 75 year diabetic who presented to my office for help with severe yeast infection over her entire pelvic region due to severe urinary incontinence leading her to have to use many pads all day long and still would soil her clothing and furniture.
When asked what was the one thing that we could use as a "carrot" to get her to do her intone training regularly, she said she wanted to be able to buy a new dress and attend her church (she had been unable to go for several years).
With her daughter's assistance, she returned in 9 weeks smiling stating that she had just bought a new dress and would be attending the next service. She remains dry 3 years later."

Some women suffer from a combination of stress and urgency urinary problems. This condition is known as mixed urinary incontinence.

"We have been using InControl Medical products for a couple of years as part of overall health and wellness. All of them are amazing, affordable, easy to teach and very effective. For women with cystocele and rectocele (relaxed pelvic floor often from vaginal child birth) we have seen these products reduce and possibly eliminate these issues. They have developed a product for men who have urine control problems as well. The InTone device gives women the vaginal muscle control they had when they were much younger prior to pregnancies."
