Is it hereditary?
No, incontinence is not hereditary. But, if you're experiencing bladder leaks, you're not alone. 25 million Americans experience leaks every single year. That's right, millions of people leak a little when they laugh or simply can't make it to the bathroom in time. But even though it’s common, there are still a lot of misconceptions about what exactly causes incontinence.
