Don't Suffer in Silence

Bladder control problems, also known as urinary incontinence, are very common and affect millions of women. They usually don't cause major health concerns, but they can be embarrassing and cause hygiene problems. The good news is that almost all cases of urinary incontinence in women can be treated, so there's no reason to suffer in silence.


What Causes Urinary Incontinence?

Incontinence occurs because of problems with muscles and nerves that help to hold or release urine. There are several common types of urinary incontinence. Among them are:

  • Stress incontinence occurs when coughing, laughing, sneezing, or other movements put pressure on the bladder and cause it to leak urine.
  • Urge incontinence occurs if you lose urine for no apparent reason after suddenly feeling the need or urge to urinate.
  • Mixed incontinence, which is a combination of stress incontinence and urge incontinence.
