Before diagnosing paruresis, you must rule out other possible diseases of the bladder. There are several treatments for this disorder:
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy
- Support Groups
Cognitive-behavioral therapy - a rather expensive method of treatment. This therapy is not more than two months. The patient gradually sinks into his fear-inducing situation, gradually adapting and becoming less susceptible to fear.
Support Group - This type of therapy is free. The patient support group runs training, receives support and advice can be discussed with the group members to share their experiences and thoughts.
Drug therapy - to recover some patients this treatment becomes crucial. However, drug therapy should be combined with either cognitive behavioral therapy or visiting a support group. Medications do not work wonders and are unable to save people from urophobia. They are just an additional tool which speeds up and simplifies the process of recovery. Medications to treat paruresis should prescribe a doctor who specializes in this area.
