Bladder problems in women
It’s common for women to experience bladder issues like frequent urination, trouble getting to the toilet in time, or leaking when you cough, sneeze or exercise.
Annoying and embarrassing bladder problems can have a huge impact on your life. You might find yourself avoiding enjoyable activities, arranging your daily routine around where the nearest toilets are or waking up exhausted because your bladder has interrupted your sleep.
Many women experience bladder leakage. No matter how light, it doesn’t have to be your new normal.
