Abstract:

"More than 15 million women in America suffer from chronic bladder control problems. Women may tolerate this uncomfortable and embarrassing condition for years, believing their difficulties are “just a part of aging” or that there is nothing they can do about it. Not true! Urinary incontinence is highly treatable. This sensitively written book details medically sound steps that include behavioral changes and exercises that can improve the continence of eight in ten women. These simple “at home” remedies, such as small dietary changes and easy-to-learn pelvic floor exercises, bring many women welcomed relief." -- publisher website (August 2006).
