Incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine and is a common problem in women. It is unfortunately one of the "secret problems" that women do not talk about because it is embarrassing and many think that the problem cannot be solved. Fortunately, the vast majority of women with incontinence can be successfully treated and many, cured.

Incontinence can be a life-altering sentence to women and has spawned a billion dollar a year incontinence pad business. Many women stay at home, or refuse to socialize for fear of embarrassment. There are several different categories of incontinence: stress incontinence, urge incontinence, mixed incontinence and total incontinence.
