Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. I am sorry to hear this, but glad you reached out to our community for help.

Urinary incontinence, which is the loss of bladder control, is a common and often embarrassing problem. The severity ranges from occasionally leaking urine when you cough or sneeze to having an urge to urinate that's so sudden and strong you don't get to a toilet in time.

It isn't a disease, it's a symptom. It can be caused by everyday habits, underlying medical conditions or physical problems. A thorough evaluation by your doctor can help determine what's behind your incontinence.

Call to schedule an evaluation appointment with your primary care physician.

Treatment for urinary incontinence depends on the type of incontinence, its severity and the underlying cause.
