Who do you see that cares about your bladder health?

Incontinence Education And Support for Patients, Caregivers, And Professionals

Incontinence, the involuntary loss of urine or fecal matter, is not a condition that anyone should have to “just live with.” It’s not something you need to accept as you get older, or an inevitable consequence of childbirth or surgery. Incontinence is a treatable medical condition, whether you have occasional light wetness, heavier bladder leakage, bedwetting, or bowel issues. No matter what type or degree of incontinence you might be experiencing, help is available. This is the place you should be.
