When to see your doctor about incontinence
If symptoms don’t improve after lifestyle, exercise and diet changes, prescription medications, including botox, may help to calm muscle spasms in the bladder. Surgery may also be an option to discuss with your doctor.
If you are affected by incontinence you might find the Bladder and Bowel community website helpful they provide downloadable resources that may be helpful.
And there’s always HRT….
But not necessarily for urinary incontinence. Stress incontinence is a possible side effect of HRT. Studies show that whilst bladder control improves for some women it may deteriorate for other women. Essential to talk to your doctor about this.
