‼️‼️Stress urinary incontinence is common among older women because the strains and tears of childbirth along with the postmenopausal atrophy of genital tissues weaken our pelvic floor muscles.
⭕️These muscles stretch like a hammock from your pubic bone to your tail bone. They hold the bladder, uterus and rectum in place and maintain pressure on the urethra – the tiny tube that allows urine to pass from the bladder. ❌💢When those muscles weaken, any abdominal pressure can cause a leak, whether it’s just an occasional trickle or a mortifying flood.
According to the National Association for Continence, women typically wait more than 6️⃣ years after their first symptoms appear before getting a diagnosis for a condition that can be managed at home or with the help of a professional.
