I think it’s funny and great way to get the conversation about leaking started. I mean how many of us know the precise location of every bathroom in a 5 mile radius? None of my patients wants to use heavy, bulky, diaper like protection. Poise works and they’re discreet, so that you can feel confident whether you’re laughing with friends, have a little cough or even stepping off a curb.
Did you know that one out of every four women will experience some form of pelvic health issue – bleeding, urinary incontinence or pelvic pain? This number actually doubles as women age!
Pelvic pain and incontinence frequently are suffered in silence, due to embarrassment. But an entire medical discipline devoted to these conditions is making significant inroads in the treatment of the painful conditions that fall under the topic of “pelvic health.” Women can now exchange embarrassment for empowerment.
In this edition of Nurse Barb’s Daily Dose, Barb speaks with the pelvic health experts: Drs. Sari Levine and Katherine Sutherland and physical therapist Meenal Mujumdar. Together, they address some of the misconceptions that keep women from seeking treatment for pelvic pain or incontinence problems and explain the advances in treatments that are worth considering.
