Will my incontinence worsen over time?
The good news: incontinence may be treatable or, in some cases, even reversible. If you have bladder leaks, there are a number of things you can do to treat or manage the condition. However, it won't get better on its own. And if you ignore it, it might get worse.
The first step towards treatment is a visit to your doctor or healthcare provider's office. Your physician can evaluate your symptoms and together you can determine the best treatment plan for you. If you're nervous about opening up to your doctor, remember you're not alone. You're one of 25 million Americans who experience leaks every single year. So, it's safe to say that your doctor has heard it all before, and more importantly, is ready to help you find the right treatment.
