Other Health Issues

Urinary incontinence means that you pass urine when you do not mean to. It can range from a small amount now and then to large floods of urine.

It is common. It can occur at any age but is more likely to develop as you get older. The estimate is that as many as 1 in 5 women over the age of 40 have some degree of incontinence. Some people wrongly think that it is a natural part of getting older or that it cannot be treated. This is not the case – many people can be successfully treated or their symptoms significantly improved.

There are three main types of urinary incontinence, Stress, Urge and Mixed.
