Urinary Incontinence Evaluation and Treatment
Urinary incontinence is more common in women than in men. Mild leakage affects most women at some time in their lives. Severe leakage is less common and affects about one in ten women. Incontinence does not always mean that a woman leaks often. But, for an active woman or a woman who loses a lot of urine each time, even one time a week or less often may be too much.
Women sometimes do not tell their doctors about their symptoms. More than one half of women who have symptoms do not seek medical care. These women may not consider leakage to be a problem or rely on absorbent pads or changes in lifestyle to deal with the problem. Others may feel ashamed or depressed or may avoid social or work events.
