Prevention

Incontinence is really a symptom of another condition. There are several ways to prevent incontinence:

  • If advised by your doctor, do Kegel exercises.
  • Reduce your intake of substances that lead to incontinence (eg, caffeine, alcohol, and certain drugs).
  • Lose weight.
  • Eat a healthy diet to avoid constipation.
