This is rarely a serious problem, but it causes a lot of trouble for women.
“Many women never admit that they are incontinent, even to their doctors,” said Katherine L. Bergio, Ph.D., associate professor, research at the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh. They are ashamed. They consider it indecent and prefer to hide the problem instead of solving it. ”
In fact, there are many reasons for the medical properties, for which in adults can occur involuntary urination, bladder disorder, called "urinary incontinence."
This disorder is much more common than you might think. Millions of adults suffer. And in women, mainly due to the peculiarities of the structure of the urinary tract and loads during pregnancy, it is found five times more often than in men.
Why are they ashamed? “Because little children are pissing their pants; they can not otherwise. But sometimes adults cannot control urination, ”notes Dr. Bergio, who works on this problem as part of a university program and treats incontinent people.
