Don't be embarrassed anymore.
Now there's hope.
You think you're alone, but it can happen to anyone. You wouldn't know, because it's not something you talk about, but now most medical sources agree that urinary incontinence (an involuntary leakage of urine) is one of the most common medical problems affecting any given population.
We are told that urinary incontinence in a normal part of aging and that we should learn to live with it. While this may have been accurate in the past, technological advancements have yielded new treatment options with positive outcomes.
Women of all ages are at risk, from athletes in their mid-twenties, along with women of childbearing age, to women experiencing menopause and women aged 60 or older. Possible causes of incontinence include menopause, pregnancy, strenuous exercise, childbirth and surgery.
There is no need to "suffer in silence" anymore. Now is the time to talk with your physician about Abilene Regional Medical Center's new Urinary Continence Program. Get some answers and some help. Regain control! Most cases of urinary incontinence are treatable and even curable.
