Incontinence is a normal part of aging
Normal and common are two different things. As women age, their bodies begin to lose the control to hold their urine. Although this is a common occurrence among all women as they age, it is NOT normal. If you are having frequent episodes of urinary leakage, please talk to your healthcare provider. Women’s Excellence has a special team dedicated to help stop your leaking!
Leakage is embarrasing, but it is not a serious medical issue
Although urinary leakage and incontinence are not life threatening, it can make your life dreadful! Not only are women faced with the physical constraints of urinary leakage, women often times alter their life to cope with urinary problems like avoiding to leave the house or refraining from sexual intercourse. At Women’s Excellence, this is serious for us! No woman needs to live with the physical and emotional toll that urinary leakage causes.

Reduce water intake to avoid leakage
Reducing your water intake can lead to dehydration and bladder irritation because fluids help your body to remove acids and bacteria out of your body. We recommend drinking plenty of water throughout the day, but in smaller doses.
Bladder leakage starts after the age of 40
Urinary incontinence is more common as you age and your bladder muscles weaken, however, events like childbirth or other traumatic bladder incidents can affect the elasticity and function of the bladder. Thankfully, Women’s Excellence treats women of all ages!
