This happens when you are not always in control of your bladder and you have a leak of urine (pass water). This can cause a lot of anxiety especially if it occurs in public and may cause a hygiene problem. Some women may also have a leak of urine during sex or need to get up during the night to pass water.
Incontinence happens four times more commonly in women than in men. At least 16% of women experience some incontinence by the age of 75 years. It can also occur though in much younger women.
All in all incontinence can cause devastating effects on life as a whole and make it much more difficult for sufferers to work, travel and enjoy an active social life. At Marble Arch Health we strive to address these problems and make your life more enjoyable. We will fully investigate your problem, listen to how incontinence affects you personally, and guide you with expert advice, as well as prescribing medication or providing surgery to alleviate your incontinence.
