I am a 53-year old woman and I have been experiencing difficulty holding in urine, especially when I sneeze or cough. Is there any treatment for this condition?
Incontinence is quite a common problem among women after menopause.
Treatment is available to control incontinence though many people are too embarrassed to seek medical help.
Some treatments for incontinence include hormone replacement therapy, bladder training, weight reduction and if needed, surgery. Do see a doctor for the best advice on which of these treatments or what other alternatives will be best to address your condition.
