Let’s face it. Urinary incontinence has changed your life, but not in a good way. The condition carries with it physical and emotional implications that have you on edge. At Innovations in Health, we have worked with many women just like you who once thought that urinary incontinence was just an unfortunate part of life, but like them, you can be liberated from urinary incontinence.
Why Women Develop Urinary Incontinence
Urine leakage is normal. It has been linked to the foods and drinks we enjoy, such as chocolate and alcohol. Laughing and coughing hard is another reason that we may have urine leak out of our bladders. There are several types of chronic urinary incontinence, but they are all linked to the same basic changes in your body. Aging, pregnancy and other life stages cause:
- Weakening of the muscles that control bladder function
- Thinning of tissues
A woman may have one or both conditions, and this will influence the nature and severity of your urinary incontinence.
