Find Freedom from Constant Bathroom Urges with Help from an Incontinence Specialist

Are you constantly on the hunt for a nearby bathroom, or do you avoid social engagements because you can’t trust yourself to laugh without leaking urine? You may be suffering from urinary incontinence or loss of bladder control, a condition many women find both embarrassing and life-limiting.

There are a few different types of urinary incontinence, including:
  • Urge incontinence – a sudden urge to urinate and urine leakage when you can’t make it to the bathroom on time.
  • Stress incontinence – urine leakage when doing certain activities, such as laughing, coughing, or sneezing.
  • Mixed incontinence – a mix of both stress and urge incontinence.

About 50% of adult women experience this condition and prevalence increases with age. Women over 50 are most likely to experience incontinence, though women in their 30s and 40s who have had multiple babies are also at a higher risk of developing the condition due to weakened pelvic floor muscles.

If urinary incontinence is impacting the quality of your life, there are several treatment options available. Your gynecologist may recommend lifestyle changes, pelvic floor physical therapy, medication, nerve stimulation, or surgery
