Incontinence affects millions of individuals worldwide. Recent estimates suggest that over 26 million adults in America alone are affected by urinary incontinence - and countless more by fecal incontinence or a combination of both types. The importance of reporting incontinence to a healthcare professional who is knowledgeable and interested in treating incontinence cannot be overstated. A correct diagnosis for incontinence is extremely important for finding proper treatment and care, and because incontinence can sometimes be an indicator of a more serious medical condition. Incontinence should not be ignored nor viewed as a normal consequence of childbirth or aging.
We would love to have you share your success stories about managing incontinence with others. See our My Story area for details.
