Urinary incontinence is the unintentional release of urine. Even if you're not familiar with the term, you may be all too familiar with the embarrassment and discomfort it can cause. You may even restrict or avoid physical activity, travel or social engagements because of your condition.
Urine leakage is not an inevitable outcome of age, childbirth, or other causes that you just have to accept. Most of the time it can be improved. Treatments available today can successfully treat many cases of sudden urine loss.
Ask your health care team about treatment options, like the GYNECARE TVT (Tension free) Support for Incontinence, a simple technique used to support the urethra.
You may feel uncomfortable about bladder control problems. Remember, urine loss is a medical problem and it's not your fault. But you have to take the first step. We would be happy to send you a list of doctors in your area who treat sudden urine loss.
