Leakage of Urine With Sexual Intimacy
Men who have undergone radical prostatectomy may have urinary leakage not only with normal day-to-day activities, but may have leakage of urine with sexual activity. Climacturia (leakage of urine with orgasm) and leakage with sexual arousal are not uncommon after the removal of the prostate gland. Men who leak urine with sex are very frustrated. This area is one in which Dr Christine has the largest series of patients successfully treated using an AdVance XP male sling. The cure rate has been truly amazing with over 80% of men with sexual activity induced urinary incontinence
completely resolving after sling placement. A minor surgery that takes less than an hour to perform, as an outpatient, can end this embarrassing problem.
Another option to treat urinary leakage with intimacy in men who have had a radical prostatectomy can be a Mini-jupette procedure. This is a different type of sling, placed at the time of a penile implant surgery; so, for men who have ED and climacturia, one surgery can be the road to a return a satisfying life.
