Learn about Solutions

Women of all ages—and about one-quarter of all women—have problems with urine leakage, overactive bladders, or a sagging/dropped bladder. But many don’t realize it’s a medical condition with medical solutions. You don’t have to let bladder control issues prevent you from participating in the activities you love.

Types of Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is the inability to control the release of your urine. Types of urinary incontinence include:
• Stress incontinence – minor leakage when you cough, laugh or sneeze
• Urge incontinence or overactive bladder – a sudden, intense urge followed by an involuntary loss of urine
• Mixed incontinence – a combination of stress and urge incontinence
• Overflow incontinence – inability to completely empty your bladder

A Broad Range of Available Treatments

Dr. Bernstein can help you determine whether you can be helped by basic changes—such as drinking less water and muscle training—or whether medications, surgical or nonsurgical treatment options would be more appropriate.

You can make an appointment with Dr. Bernstein, who’ll work closely with you to diagnose your condition and develop the best treatment plan for you to manage it and live a healthier life.
