Electrical stimulation of the pelvic floor

Electrical stimulation:

Electrical stimulation of the pelvic floor can help reduce urgency and frequency symptoms associated with overactive bladder. This treatment is for both men and women.

A probe is placed in the vagina (for women) or back passage (for men). The probe carries an electrical current, which can help to exercise and strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. This is very useful for people who find it hard to do pelvic floor muscle exercises on their own.

This treatment is generally carried out by, or under the supervision of a nurse specialist, although machines may be available for you to treat yourself at home.
