Urinary Incontinence at West Penn Hospital
Urinary Incontinence: A Common and Treatable Problem
Millions of women, including new mothers and older women, suffer from bladder control problems. Many are too embarrassed to talk about urinary incontinence - even with their doctors - and never get the help they need.
But help is available. Urinary incontinence is surprisingly common - and very treatable.
Take the bladder test:
1. Are you using the bathroom so often that it disrupts your day?
2. Do you lose urine with coughing, laughing, sneezing, exercise or lifting heavy objects?
3. Do you have trouble making it to the bathroom at times without having an accident?
4. Are you using pads or other protection to absorb urine leakage?
5. Do you feel any pressure or bulging in the vagina?
If you answered "yes" to one or more of these questions, you may want to make an appointment with a physician.
