​Urinary incontinence in postmenopausal women

Did you know, "Urinary incontinence (UI) is an important social problem that affects more than 50% of postmenopausal women"? And yet, you don't exactly see ads filled with solutions, or women talking about it, or anything except discreet aisles filled with thick pantyliners and adult diapers. This study looked at urinary incontinence and what to do about it.

Researchers looked at the five major types of urinary incontinence, and the treatment options for UI. "Statistical data show that only 1/3 of patients undertake treatment attempts. Unfortunately, often people affected by this problem believe that the only form of treatment is surgery and for obvious reasons they are afraid to undergo it." The reality is that vaginal estrogen is an effective treatment for UI and it is one of the safest and most effective ways to treat it.

We've written blogs about UTI's before, including our top three tips on what you can do to help reduce it, and how stress incontinence can make overall UI worse.
