Take control of your bladder health
One in four women age 18 and older experiences urinary incontinence (UI) – so UI isn’t something you have to hide or be embarrassed about. Over 13 million women in the United States – 15 to 35 percent of women nationwide – suffer from UI or loss of bladder control at some point in their lives. Though it can strike at any age, UI is most common in women over 50.
Whether you leak when you run, sneeze or laugh, constantly feel like you need to go to the bathroom, or feel pressure, heaviness or a weakening of the pelvic muscles, there are many treatment options available through Novant Health that can help you gain control over your bladder. We specialize in the latest technology and treatments for urinary incontinence including lifestyle changes, exercise, medications, prevention techniques and minimally invasive surgeries.
Your doctor may refer you to a specialist or an urogynecologist.
