Can I Prevent Urinary Incontinence?

You can lessen the effects of bladder problems using pelvic floor exercises. These exercises are also used to prevent long-term continence issues from starting in the first place.

Once you’ve learnt the basics they can be done on your own at home, but advice and guidance from a qualified and experienced healthcare professional should be sought first.

Results from pelvic floor exercises can take 3 to 6 weeks to materialise so you’ll need to be patient, but the benefits are worth the work.

Other things to consider when trying to prevent urinary incontinence include diet changes and in, some cases, your doctor may suggest that you try medication.
