Incontinence - Women

1 out of 3 women over the age of 45 suffer from some degree of urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence is the medical term used to describe the condition of not being able to control the flow of urine from your body. Incontinence usually occurs because the urethra cannot close tightly enough to hold urine in the bladder.

Urinary incontinence is a far more common condition than you may realize. Unfortunately, many don't realize that effective treatment options are helping women regain their comfort and confidence.

Don't feel ashamed to talk to your physician about incontinence problems.
