What is Urinary Incontinence?
20% of women are concerned with or suffer from the most common form of mild or stressful urinary incontinence. Stress Urinary Incontinence occurs during physical exercise, sports, coughing or sneezing. This effort causes pressure on the bladder and causes a small urinary leak.
What causes Urinary Incontinence?
During a woman’s life, childbirth, menopause, and age may have caused relaxation of the pelvic muscles, a natural process of the body. Women are often embarrassed to talk to their doctor and only 1/3 of them dare to confide because they do not know how to discuss their problem. This problem can cause loss of self-esteem and anxiety during sex. Many women often use disposable pads to deal with the problem, but there is another way.
