Female Urinary Incontinence: More Solutions Than Ever Before

urinary incontinence

Researchers estimate that over three million women worldwide have been diagnosed with female urinary incontinence and as many as 50% of women don't seek help. The most common type of bladder incontinence by far is stress incontinence, significant leakage that may occur when you sneeze, cough, or laugh, but nearly half of women deal with urge, mixed, and other forms.

For generations, women with bladder incontinence often experienced shame, depression, and isolation and found themselves unable to take part in certain activities if they were too far from a restroom, but today women have many treatment options to explore regardless of what type of urinary incontinence they have. From exercises to surgeries, let's take a look at many of these solutions.
