It’s not just common, it’s treatable.

Getting Honest About Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is far more common than you might think – because people don’t like to talk about it. But the truth is that as many as one in three women struggles with incontinence, and as many as 25 million Americans suffer from it, and it can happen to both sexes at any age. But it isn’t inevitable.

Incontinence is often caused by specific changes in body function that may result from diseases, childbirth, medications, and/or the onset of an illness. It can sometimes be the first and only symptom of a urinary tract infection. Pregnancy, childbirth and aging can all increase the likelihood of a weakened pelvic floor, which can lead to incontinence, painful intercourse and organ prolapse – even in young women.

You’re Not Alone

These problems are common – but only a tiny fraction will seek help. Solutions available to you from the expert urologists and urogynecologists at INTEGRIS Health are often simple, like special exercises, biofeedback and yoga. But the first step is talking about it. Don’t suffer in silence. Take that step today.
