Information from our Pelvic Health knowledge base

Bladder & Bowel Incontinence

Bladder and bowel incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine or stool. Dealing with this embarrassing ailment can get overwhelming at times. You may schedule your days around it, which will inadvertently affect your quality of life.

And because women go through various reproductive changes in life, women are more likely than men to experience incontinence. Pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause weaken the pelvic floor muscles, thus weakening the muscles that hold the bladder and bowel sphincters.

But what is now weak can be strengthened again, and it is best to consult a pelvic health practitioner to help you effectively deal with bladder and bowel incontinence.
