How to Treat Urinary Incontinence

Incontinence affects millions of men and women worldwide, so you shouldn’t feel embarrassed to seek treatment. In many cases, urinary incontinence is curable, and the condition is always manageable.

Incontinence treatments

The type of incontinence you’re experiencing will dictate the treatment that is suitable for you. The first step to overcoming incontinence should always be to speak to your GP, who’ll work with you to offer suitable treatment. This could include:

 

Urodynamics

These are a series of tests used to evaluate bladder function so, if needed, further treatment can be recommended.
