Incontinence, like vaginas and vulva’s, may be another topic “down there” many of us are reluctant to talk about. But there is good news.

Meno Martha and Incontinence

In Laugh Without Leaking: About Laugh Without Leaking the Continence Foundation of Australia elaborate on:

“The good news is most bladder, bowel and pelvic floor problems can be better treated, managed or even cured”.

On their website’s current home page, the (United States) National Association for Continence (NAFC) the NAFC explain:

“Incontinence, the involuntary loss of urine or fecal matter, is not a condition that anyone should have to “just live with.” It’s not something you need to accept as you get older, or an inevitable consequence of childbirth or surgery. It’s a treatable medical condition, whether you have occasional light wetness, heavier bladder leakage, bedwetting or bowel issues. No matter what type or degree of incontinence you might be experiencing, help is available”.

In Menopause the Continence Foundation of Australia also note:

“Menopause is a time of change in a woman’s life. One of the changes many women notice is increased difficulty with bladder and bowel control”.

In Menopause: Common Symptoms the Continence Foundation of Australia elaborate on:

Meno Martha and Incontinence“Passing urine frequently and rushing to the toilet (urgency) to pass urine are the most common symptoms. Other symptoms include:

  • Leakage of urine with coughs, sneezes, or exercise
  • Leakage of urine on the way to the toilet
  • Getting up twice or more overnight to pass urine
  • Frequent urinary tract infections
  • Rushing to the toilet to open bowels
  • Being unable to control wind, and
  • Constipation”.

Different treatment options may be available. In Incontinence Conditions From A – Z the NAFC elaborate on:

“With more than 25 million Americans affected by either bladder control or bowel control issues, the medical community has taken note. And because incontinence is a symptom rather than a disease, the method of treatment depends on diagnostic results. Most treatment involves a combination of medicine, behavioral modification, pelvic muscle exercises, collection devices, and absorbent products. Despite the high success rates in treating incontinence, only 1 out of every 12 people affected seeks help. Don’t be like those other 11 people”.
