URINARY INCONTINENCE Q & A
WHEN SHOULD I SEE MY DOCTOR?
Talking to someone about urinary incontinence can be embarrassing, but our doctors will show compassion while helping you find a solution. If you are feeling the urge to go frequently, are often leaking or your incontinence is having an impact on your quality of life—it is time to speak to a doctor to get expert medical advice. It is important to realize that your urinary incontinence could point to an underlying medical condition, restrict your social interactions, limit your activities and increase the risk of injuries for certain adults. Urinary incontinence can be caused by several different factors, such as:
- Certain medications
- Urinary tract infection
- Drinking alcohol or eating certain foods
Your OB/GYN and medical team can help you to find the cause and the solution for your urinary incontinence so that you can get back to living your life to the fullest.
