Female urinary incontinence (leakage of urine that is difficult to control) is not something that is often talked about, yet many women deal with it every day. The effects—or fear of the effects—can have a harmful impact on your day-to-day activities. For example, a funny joke could lead to an accident while you are out to dinner with friends. Or you intentionally avoid long car trips because you are afraid that you won’t be close enough to a restroom. Or maybe you are fed up with waking up three times a night to go to the restroom. All of these issues can leave you feeling self-conscious and isolated because you think you are the only woman dealing with this issue. You are not.
