Ever laugh so hard that tears stream down your leg?
Life is not quite as fun when you frequently have to run to the bathroom or have bladder leakage every time you laugh, cough, sneeze, or exercise. What causes this uncomfortable and sometimes embarrassing condition? How can it be treated?
Below we share highlights from our Zoom chat, “Let’s Talk About Incontinence,” with Dr. Ramzi Aboujaoude and Dr. Boyd Clary, expert urogynecologists at the Urogynecology Center at VPFW. Their presentation explains the causes and different types of urinary incontinence (the loss of bladder control) as well as different treatment options. We also shared Dr. Aboujaoude and Dr. Clary’s answers to some questions frequently asked by their patients. Their goal is to help you find relief!
