Help For Incontinent Women
Women who suffer with incontinence – or an uncontrollable need to urinate -- may avoid laughing and working out and may have moments of panic when they cough. They may change what they do and the way they live to deal with a treatable health problem, rather than seek help. Dr. Ingber joins Dr. DeSilva to demystify the subject and provide some concrete recommendations for ways that have been shown to prevent incontinence.
