Urinary incontinence is a common problem for women. Many women are embarrassed about leaking urine and are hesitant to bring it up for fear that nothing can be done or that it is a normal part of aging. It is important to discuss this with your doctor. There are reversible causes of incontinence and surgical and medical management of other causes.
Many women with incontinence also suffer from pelvic organ prolapse, a condition in which the uterus, bladder and/or rectum bulge into, or out of, the vagina.
The good news is that most cases of prolapse and incontinence can be cured or improved. The gynecologists at Carolina OB/GYN will perform diagnostic tests and provide you with options that best fit your needs.
There are several types of incontinence and treatment options depend on the type. It’s important to make the right diagnosis to ensure effective treatment.
