Talking to your doctor

Intimate health difficulties like urine leakage or frequent urination can seem hard to discuss.

Don't be afraid to ask questions, after all, it's the only way to get answers.

Here are some good ways to prepare for your appointment with your doctor:

  • Making a list of your symptoms can help the doctor diagnose what type of urine leakage you are dealing with and also determine what the cause of the problem is.
  • It's easy to forget some of your questions while you're talking to your doctor. As such, it's always a good idea to write down your questions before your visit. That way you can be sure to get all your questions answered during your appointment.
