Recent research on pelvic muscle exercises, which are known to be effective in stress and mixed urinary incontinence, has demonstrated that this therapy has a durable effect. However, the mechanism that creates its efficacy remains unclear. Transvaginal electrical stimulation has been used to manage stress, urge and mixed urinary incontinence. Conflicting evidence exists concerning its efficacy in stress urinary incontinence, but its benefit to women with mixed and urge incontinence is well established.
