Incontinence is the loss of bladder or bowel control. Nearly 20 million men and women of all ages are affected by this condition. Many mistakenly believe nothing can be done to correct it. If you are dealing with incontinence, it is important to know that there are treatments available to help reduce or reverse your symptoms.

Find Out Your Incontinence Risk with our Online Assessment

When thinking about your bladder or bowel habits, have you noticed:

  • An increased frequency of urination?
  • Urine leaks?
  • Your bladder function affects your daily activity?
  • You’ve stopped or changed physical activity or exercise because of your bladder?
  • Pelvic and/or vaginal pain?
  • Pelvic pain affects activities or your relationship with your partner?
  • Constipation or difficulties with bowel movements?

If you have experienced some of these symptoms, you may have a pelvic floor disorder. Pelvic floor muscles and connective tissues support your internal organs, including your bowels and bladder. If these muscles are weakened or injured, you may have bladder or bowel control problems.

See your health care provider for an evaluation, or let us help you find a doctor. Many pelvic floor disorders can be treated with simple, nonsurgical treatments or minimally invasive techniques. Talk with your provider about the best treatment options for you.
