Urinary incontinence

Urinary Incontinence is Normal, Right?

Wrong. Millions of women experience involuntary loss or leakage of urine, called urinary stress incontinence. Instead of seeking professional help and treatment for incontinence, many women mistakenly assume loss of bladder control or overactive bladder is an inevitable part of aging, but it is not. The good news is with an accurate diagnosis, urinary and pelvic disorders can be treated, managed and often eliminated.

URINARY INCONTINENCE RISK ASSESSMENT

With urinary stress incontinence, women may find that their urinary leakage occurs when they:

  • Move in a way that puts pressure on the bladder
  • Cough, laugh, sneeze, exercise, lift or bend over

If you believe you are experiencing urinary incontinence or overactive bladder, talk with your doctor or health care provider. You may be referred to a urogynecologist, a specialist who focuses on urinary and pelvic disorders in women. Your practitioner may recommend or perform urodynamics, a special type of bladder testing that can help properly diagnose urinary incontinence and choose the best treatment option for you.

Remember:

  • Urinary stress incontinence is common in women.
  • Urinary stress incontinence is treatable at all ages.
