Can urinary incontinence be prevented?

During your initial consultation, your doctor will tell you more about what this condition means and how it can be prevented.

There are multiple causes that can lead to urinary incontinence which makes it hard to provide one solution. Urinary incontinence is, in fact, a symptom and not a disease. Therefore, it’s necessary to have a thorough examination to understand what the precise cause is.

However, there are certain ways of preventing this problem. Pelvic muscle exercises are a good prevention method, as well as avoiding foods or liquids that irritate the bladder.
