Did you know on average, women wait six-and-a-half years before talking to their doctor about their bladder control issues?

While that’s a long time to live with symptoms of incontinence, women used to wait an average of 10 years before bringing up the problem to their doctor. The risk of incontinence increases as you age; but can begin as young as 20 and old as 98 years old. If you are experiencing systems of incontinence, don’t be embarrassed and don’t put off talking to your doctor.
