Two out of 3 women never discuss bladder health or incontinence with their doctor. Shyness. Embarrassment. Shame. A feeling that, “it’s just part of growing old.” Or not knowing which medical professional can help. All these are reasons you may suffer in silence with stress incontinence or urge incontinence – wearing pads, limiting your social life, or continually searching for a public restroom. Gynecologists are trained to help you with this problem – one that occurs in 40% of women after giving birth.
