Dr. Eilber provides three tips for women who are suffering from urinary incontinence.
My name is Dr. Karen Eilber. I am a urologist in Santa Monica, California, affiliated with Saint John’s Health Center. I am here today to tell women that urinary incontinence is a condition that can be cured, and I’d like to give you three tips on that.
Number one, it is extremely common. I guarantee that not you but probably most of your friends are affected by this. Number two, you need to tell your physician. Only if you tell your physician it’s bothering you can he or she recommend you to a specialist. And third, know that this condition is treatable, and it can markedly improve your quality of life.
