What you can do about bladder weakness
70% of women regain control of their bladder
Many people have told us how bladder weakness can really interfere with their lifestyle: they cut out certain activities, are constantly checking to see where the nearest toilet is, and worrying whether they might smell of urine or that leaks would show through clothing.
Well, the good news is that it doesn’t have to be that way: with the right lifestyle changes and protection you can socialise, exercise and carry out all your daily activities with relaxed confidence.
In general, healthcare professionals tend to follow the least invasive methods to improve bladder weakness such as lifestyle changes, physiotherapy exercises and medical devices. If these fail to work, a specialist may consider whether a more invasive treatment is required, such as medication or surgery.
