• If you have started having bladder control problems (urinary incontinence), such as leaking urine, you may be wondering what to do next. You may also be wondering if it's just something you have to put up with as you get older, what is causing this problem, or what you can do to manage it. First, let's put aside your concern: urinary incontinence is not a normal part of aging.

  • You don't have to manage incontinence on your own. Incontinence is much more common than you may think. And contrary to popular belief, it is not a problem that only seniors experience; incontinence can affect young people as well. In Canada, 3.3 million adults (about 10% of the population!) experience some type of urinary incontinence.
