Menopause and Incontinence
Menopause refers to the cessation of monthly periods and the end of a woman’s fertility. Most women begin to experience menopause symptoms in their middle to late 40s and their last period in their 50s.
Menopause treatment can often help alleviate such bothersome symptoms as weight gain, irritability, breast pain and vaginal atrophy. They may also provide relief from embarrassing bladder incontinence, which is often associated with menopause.
The bladder and urethral muscles can weaken in response to the dropping hormone levels, which can lead to leakage. Urinary incontinence can be associated with stress, which means that a cough, sneeze, laughter or physical exertion can all cause leakage or bladder control problems. In some cases, women may experience a frequent need to urinate even when their bladders are empty, and this constant pressure can lead to occasional leaks. Painful urination and nighttime urination are also considered to be forms of incontinence.
Women who are experiencing frequent urination, painful urination or occasional leakage can often alleviate their symptoms by making lifestyle changes. Women who are overweight or obese may benefit from losing weight while all women can benefit from strengthening their pelvic floor muscles through the use of Kegel exercises. Limiting caffeine consumption, using a menopause natural cure and timing your bathroom visits can all help.
DON’T PAUSE may also be an option. Made from 100 percent natural ingredients, DON’T PAUSE is designed to promote healthy aging and relieve bothersome menopause symptoms, including urge incontinence, stress incontinence and painful urination.
