Pelvic Health & Incontinence Support
Half of all women have never talked to their doctor about care, management or treatment of pelvic health conditions. Many women suffer in silence with urinary incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, abnormal uterine bleeding, sexual dysfunction or human papillomavirus (HPV), too embarrassed to talk with their doctor or believing many of these conditions are a normal part of aging. They are not, and most are very treatable.
Always running to the bathroom? Or - oops - leaking when you laugh, cough or sneeze? You may be the one in three women who experience urge or stress incontinence. Take the free BladderAware risk assessment and find out your risk now!
