Are Poise® Impressa® Bladder Supports a good alternative to surgery?

Yes, Impressa® Bladder Supports can be a good alternative to surgery if you have Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). What makes Impressa® unique is that it's an over-the-counter pessary (a device placed into the vagina to support the uterus or bladder) that fills a gap in the current treatment landscape for SUI. The more conservative options available today include physical therapy, lifestyle changes, and absorbent pads and liners. And on the other end of the spectrum, there are more drastic and invasive options, like surgeries, that help support the urethra or bladder neck. For more information on surgery or other treatment options for SUI, you should talk with your health care provider.
