Stress urinary incontinence is a common condition characterised by the involuntary leakage of urine during activities that put pressure on the bladder, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising.
It occurs when the muscles and tissues that support the bladder and urethra become weakened or damaged, leading to the inability to maintain proper urinary control. It is caused by weakened pelvic floor muscles and a loss of support to the bladder and urethra.
The main symptom of stress urinary incontinence is the unintentional leakage of urine during activities that exert pressure on the bladder. This leakage is typically associated with physical movements and not necessarily with a strong urge to urinate.
The O Concept™ was created by Dr Wakil to bring a wide range of non-surgical procedures that now includes stress incontinence treatment.
The O Concept™ is a bespoke program where the patient receives a treatment protocol that is tailor-made especially for her and the specific stress urinary incontinence condition in order to achieve the best results. The O Concept™ is the only treatment protocol that combines treatments, like the popular O-Shot®, in specific order and at precise intervals based on each individual patient and their specific condition.
Referred to as the Godfather of Sexual Aesthetics, Dr Wakil has been awarded multiple national and global awards for his work in sexual rehabilitation and vaginal rejuvenation treatments, having treated over 25,000 cases worldwide.

Some common causes and risk factors include:
- Pregnancy and childbirth: The stretching and trauma that occur during pregnancy and vaginal childbirth can weaken the pelvic floor muscles and damage the supportive tissues.
- Aging: As people age, the muscles and tissues in the pelvic area naturally weaken, increasing the risk of stress urinary incontinence.
- Menopause: The decrease in estrogen levels during menopause can lead to a loss of elasticity and strength in the vaginal tissues and pelvic floor muscles.
- Obesity: Excess weight can put added pressure on the bladder and pelvic floor muscles, increasing the risk of stress urinary incontinence.
Stress urinary incontinence options depend on the severity of symptoms, individual circumstances, and personal preferences. Some common treatment options include:
- Pelvic Floor Exercises: Strengthening the pelvic floor muscles through exercises such as Kegels can help improve muscle tone and support the bladder and urethra.
- Behavioral Modifications: Lifestyle changes, such as managing fluid intake, maintaining a healthy weight, and avoiding activities that trigger stress urinary incontinence, can help reduce symptoms.
- Bladder Training: Techniques such as scheduled voiding and delayed urination can help retrain the bladder and improve urinary control.
- Medical Devices: Certain devices, such as vaginal pessaries or urethral inserts, can provide additional support to the bladder and help reduce leakage.
- Medications: In some cases, medications that help improve urethral sphincter function or increase bladder muscle tone may be prescribed.
- Surgical Intervention: These can include techniques such as bladder neck suspension, sling procedures, or artificial urinary sphincter placement.
