Incontinence Due to Menopause and How to Deal with It

Incontinence Due to Menopause and How to Deal with ItUrinary incontinence is a major problem for many women during and after menopause. It can occur as either stress incontinence or urge incontinence. Women who have stress incontinence may leak urine when they sneeze, laugh, cough or simply bend over. It is most commonly associated with weakened pelvic floor muscles. Urge incontinence is associated with a sudden, intense need to urinate. Your risk of urge incontinence is higher if you are overweight, have had a C-section or have diabetes.

While incontinence is not necessarily a health issue, it can be embarrassing. The moisture can also increase your risk of chafing, skin irritation and infections. DON’T PAUSE may be right for you. Lifestyle changes can ease some of the symptoms of urinary incontinence and help strengthen the muscles that hold the urine in, but they cannot necessarily address the underlying cause.

The tissues surrounding the bladder and urethra can become deprived of estrogen during menopause. Estrogen is a female hormone that helps keep skin soft and supple. Vaginal tissue and the tissue of the bladder and urethra can atrophy, which can lead to symptoms of incontinence. Restoring healthier hormone levels can alleviate these symptoms and restore health to these delicate tissues.

You can take additional steps to alleviate the symptoms of incontinence. Kegel exercises are one of the most common ways for women to strengthen their pelvic floor muscles. Kegels focus on the Kegel muscles, or the muscles that are used to interrupt the flow of urine. Repeatedly tightening and releasing these muscles can be helpful for many women. Women with overactive bladder or urge incontinence may need to evaluate their diet and reduce their intake of caffeine, alcohol, spicy foods and other common irritants. DON’T PAUSE uses natural herbs to restore balance to your hormones and your body and can give you powerful relief from urinary incontinence and other symptoms of menopause.
