Bladder control issues can affect women of all ages. Urinary incontinence related “accidents’ can happen after child birth or any time later in a woman’s life. It is estimated that one in three women suffer urinary incontinence and the incidence increases with older women.
Issues like incontinence and vaginal prolapse can be embarrassing and affect your quality of life, emotional state, body image and sexuality according to Linda Brubaker, professor of female pelvic medicine and a pioneer urogynaecologist from Chicago School of Medicine.
