Visiting a doctor

It is often the case that people with incontinence belittle their problem, or they are so embarrassed, that they keep it a secret and never reveal it to their doctor or relatives. It is important to know that by putting away the visit to the doctor you risk worsening the condition which makes you incontinent. Don’t postpone the visit.

It is difficult to overcome the embarrassment, so prepare for the visit:

What questions to expect from the doctor:

After the interview the doctor can direct you to an urologist. It is difficult to make a diagnosis judging only on the symptoms, so probably you will be ordered to go through specialist tests, carry out a urine analysis and undergo other examination. The outcome of these tests will help the doctor to choose proper treatment. Be prepared for a physical examination (urological / gynecological examination).
