Do I need fillers to improve incontinence?

Fillers or urethral bulking have been shown to improve bladder control in some people. Injecting material like collagen around the urethra can help in one of two ways. It can either close a hole through which urine has been leaking or build up the thickness of the urethra wall so that it seals more tightly when you hold back urine. You should discuss this treatment method and other options with your healthcare provider.
