The Women's Continence Program
Millions of women experience urinary incontinence every day. Sometimes it's just a few drops while they cough, run or are in the midst of some physical activity. In other cases, it may be a strong, sudden urge to urinate or a large loss of urine in an embarrassing situation.
The Women's Continence Program at Southwest Healthcare System can help. Physicians at Inland Valley Medical Center in Wildomar and Rancho Springs Medical Center in Murrieta can help.
What Causes Incontinence
Urinary incontinence is often caused by physical changes as women age, but can sometimes be caused by other conditions. Over time, it can lead to social withdrawal, emotional distress and planning your day to make sure there's a restroom nearby at all times.
Women experience urinary incontinence twice as often as men because of pregnancy and childbirth, menopause, and the structure of the female urinary tract. Women can also become incontinent from neurologic injury, birth defects, stroke, multiple sclerosis and physical problems associated with aging.
