I want to address something that I have been dealing with for years. It is not something that I like to willingly discuss or strike up a conversation about. It is embarrassing, annoying and is downright uncomfortable! What is “it”? Bladder leakage and I’m treating it with Elitone!

After giving birth to 3 children in 2 ½ years, I have been experiencing bladder leakage for years. When I cough, sneeze, or even when I laugh there’s a little leak. Now that I am nearly 63 years old, I seem to have it before I hit the toilet, after urination, and even when I just think about it. Unfortunately, 1 in 3 women experience this condition & SOMETHING NEEDS TO BE DONE! I have tried Kegel exercises – when I think about doing them. Unfortunately, I have been very bad at keeping to a regime. Luckily, I have found a solution that “thinks” about strengthening the pelvic floor muscles for me!

What is Elitone?

Elitone is an FDA-cleared appliance that exercises your pelvic floor for you in the safest, most efficient way possible. It’s necessary to have a Healthy pelvic floor & muscles to maintain control over bladder leaks. Your muscles need to be regularly exercised just like any other muscle.  It sends a therapeutic stimulation of gentle low-frequency pulses to safely and comfortably exercise your pelvic floor muscles.  As you feel your pelvic floor slowly contract and relax you can be confident that you’re on your way to fewer leaks.

The GelPad is similar to a panty liner and the controller which delivers that pulses to the GelPad which in turn contracts the muscles. The Gel Pad can be used several times as long as it is able to make contact with the skin. It is this contact that gives the best results. Personally, I found that trimming the hair at the application sites was the best way to achieve this.

This unit is very comfortable to wear and I didn’t even notice a difference between this and a pad. In fact, it wasn’t as bulky! I have been using it as directed for 20 minutes a day and for 4 days a week. As I said before, I am not really good at maintaining a schedule, so I just use it every other day. Starting at a lower frequency and gradually increasing the strength of the impulse over repeated uses is a major plus. Everyone has a different tolerance level so you can choose your own comfort zone.

How long does it take?

Six weeks of therapy should provide you with a continued reduction of bladder leakage with maintenance therapy as needed. With the completion of the next few weeks, it will determine the results of my efforts. 

An interesting fact is that some insurances cover the cost of Elitone! As with anything else, you will have to check this out with your individual carrier to see if it applies to you. You may be able to use your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) or Health Saving Account (HSA) funds towards the purchase of this product.

With the New Year quickly approaching, I am really looking forward to a resolution of a “leak-free” year! This great unit will be the reason for my success! Finally, a resolution that I will keep!
