Urinary incontinence

What is Urinary Incontinence?

Urinary Incontinence (UI) is defined as the ‘inconvenient, involuntary and accidental leakage of urine causing social or hygiene problems’. Embarrassing and distressing, it is a common condition and it’s your body telling you that all is not well. For many women and men, simple kegel exercises can really help restore control within weeks.
