Although incontinence affects 10 to 25 percent of women in the United States, many women never receive treatment because they are embarrassed about discussing the problem with a doctor. This is unfortunate as female incontinence can be treated once the cause is determined. The Urogynecology Center uses urodynamic testing to monitor the effects of increased bladder pressure on nerves and other structures in order to pinpoint the source of the problem. Once doctors determine the cause, they recommend a course of treatment, which usually includes exercises, medications, biofeedback or electrical stimulation. Some women require surgery or other treatments.
