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 … it is annoying … and it 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, when I sneeze, or even when I laugh. 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 experiences 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! It is called Elitone!

What is Elitone?

Elitone is an FDA-cleared appliance that exercises your pelvic floor for you in the safest, most efficient way possible. Healthy pelvic floor muscles are needed to maintain control over bladder leaks. These muscles need to be regularly exercised just like any other muscle.  ELITONE 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. 

Elitone is basically made up of two separate parts – the GelPad that 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 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. I started at a low frequency and gradually increased the strength of the impulse over repeated uses. That is a major plus because everyone has a different tolerance level so you can choose your own comfort zone. I must admit that I was a bit apprehensive at first not knowing what to expect, but I quickly learned that my fears were unfounded and not necessary.

How long does it take?

According to the product information, 6 weeks of therapy should provide you with a continued reduction of bladder leakage with maintenance therapy as needed. I am so looking forward to the completion of the next few weeks to 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. In addition, 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 and Elitone will be the reason for my success! Finally, a resolution that I will keep!
