A new report just published has confirmed again that incontinence is one of the most common problems experienced by women and yet most of the women experiencing it haven’t discussed it with their Doctor.

The new report, commissioned by the National Women’s Health Resource Center (NWHRC) in America, is a first-of-its kind study on the prevalence of pelvic health disorders among American women.

The report says that an estimated 33 percent of “Baby Boom” women (those born between 1946 and 1964) have stress urinary incontinence, but only about 47 percent of all women have ever asked their doctor about it.

Many women don’t realize that treatment may be as simple as pelvic floor exercises or biofeedback, the report said.
