A little leakage is common in women, and it’s nothing to be embarrassed about. It’s called stress urinary incontinence. You can learn more about it by consulting a gynecologist and watching this featured video. You’ll hear from an editor at WebMD, who explains that stress incontinence is caused by weakened pelvic floor muscles.

These are the muscles that hold your bladder up. They can get stretched out because of childbirth, which is why women are more commonly affected by bladder leakage. There are effective treatment options available, including Kegel exercises and simple lifestyle changes. If you need medical intervention, your gynecologist may recommend getting fitted for a pessary.

Urinary incontinence is one of the many conditions we treat here at Women’s Healthcare Associates. Call 713-481-7052 to request an appointment with a gynecologist in Houston.
