Urinary Incontinence in Women Slideshow

What is Urinary Incontinence ? "Urinary incontinence, or loss of bladder control, is a frustrating problem for more than 13 million Americans. Never knowing when and where you might have an accident can impact everything from work to exercise to your social calendar. Urinary incontinence affects people of either gender but is twice as common in women." Yikes, twice as commin in women?

Ladies, what is the most frustrating part of urinary incontinence or OAB for you?

Srmat101, that's a good point. It really does make things more complicated than they were before the incontinence.

Are you still able to do the things you enjoy if you plan ahead/take a few more steps?
