Urinary incontinence is not a natural phenomenon associated with aging. Many women put up with this situation rather than seek help, thinking that there may be no solution to urinary incontinence. There are treatment options that completely eliminate or at least reduce urinary incontinence, depending on each age group and patient characteristics.
