Urinary Incontinence

Many people don't realize just how common urinary incontinence is. In the United States alone, it is estimated that millions of women's lives are affected by this condition, yet many are reluctant to discuss it - even with their family, friends or physician. That leaves them feeling vulnerable and alone. Yet millions of Americans - both men and women - experience persistent incontinence. Unfortunately, many suffer in silence. You are not alone
