Hi again Anon! 

Yes - Botox is being used for this condition, you can talk to your doctor about your options. 

Also, there is surgery available to correct this, insertion of a pessary or medications that can help. 

Using an adult pad will help to avoid wetting your pants too, as well as limiting coffee, timing your bathroom trips and not drinking too much at one time,

Hi Anon

Thanks for your question! 

Our age does have an impact on our bladder - very much so! 

But there are ways to circumvent this.  Menopause and the hormonal fluctuations certainly affect the bladder's strength. 

We have a great article about this on our site that you should read - click here :  http://www.empowher.com/community/share/post-menopause-urinary-incontinence-issues

Please let us know what you think about your options when you finish reading!
