Thank you for your question, Trish.

Patients with incontinence and intrinsic sphincter deficiency may be candidates for a sling procedure called (TVT) or Trans Vaginal Taping . The goal of this treatment is to create sufficient urethral compression to achieve bladder control.

According to the UrologyChannel.com, recovery from the procedure takes 3 to 4 weeks. Heavy lifting and sexual intercourse should be avoided for 4 to 6 weeks. Normal daily activity can resume within 1 to 2 weeks. Recent studies have shown that tension-free vaginal tape (TVT) may be up to 90% effective over time.

I hope this helps.
