Incontinence and Bladder Dysfunction

When your bladder lets you down

Over three million British women of all ages suffer with urinary incontinence at some point. Only a fraction of these women seek treatment: a great many women see it as an unavoidable part of life, especially after childbirth, or don't realise that it can be treated effectively.

Urinary incontinence can have a marked impact on your well-being and quality of life. It commonly affects self-confidence, social activities, physical activities, travel and even relationships.

If you think you may have urinary incontinence, it's important to know that it can be treated. You don't have to just "live with it."

Bladder Botox injections

In recent years, injections of Botox given into the bladder have become an important new treatment for overactive bladder and urinary incontinence. Follow this link for more details about how bladder botox injections could help you.
