Urinary incontinence – the loss of bladder control and overactive bladder are extremely common around the time of menopause in women, according to Dr. Cady. For many women it is frustrating and embarrassing. Left untreated, it can seriously affect a woman’s quality of life. It is important that women discuss urinary incontinence with their doctor because incontinence can be treated.
Dr. Cady explains: “Urinary incontinence is common in women. Laughing, sneezing, and even exercise can trigger accidents in many women. Loss of bladder control may be caused by many factors including women who have had children may experience bladder issues. Aging weakens muscles, and declining estrogen levels at menopause can further weaken muscles. There are several excellent non-hormonal and prescribed treatment options available that can either greatly improve or even cure urinary incontinence. Incontinence is not an acceptable part of aging and women should not suffer in silence.”
“Bladder Matters” is part of a series of seminars offered by CRMC’s Women’s Health. All questions from participants will be answered. Find more educational information at https://link.zixcentral.com/u/f0dd0d60/hgM5aIRX7RGX6bUnh3soMg?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.cuyunamed.org%2Fpatient-care%2Fwomens-health
