Urinary Incontinence is defined as the involuntary leaking of urine. This condition can be a major disruption in your life but there are many treatment options available. Northeast OB/GYN offers in-house Uro-ynamic testing and treatment, so you don't have to see another specialist.
Some of the common symptoms and behaviors associated with urinary incontinence are:
- You urinate when you laugh, cough, sneeze, exercise or during intercourse
- You wear pads to absorb urine
- You get up more than twice at night to urinate
- You plan trips or outings around the availability of restrooms
In order to treat this condition, it is important that you are properly examined and diagnosed by a doctor. Contact us to schedule an evaluation.
