Urge Urinary Incontinence

What is Urge Urinary Incontinence?

Leakage that occurs after suddenly feeling the need to urinate; The loss of bladder control is a common and often embarrassing problem. The severity ranges from occasionally leaking urine when you have the urge to urinate or on the way to the bathroom to a more severe problem that's so sudden and strong you just can’t get to a toilet in time. A common cause is abnormal nerve signals that result in bladder spasms.

At the Female Pelvic Health Center we are experts in treating urinary incontinence, with many of the treatments performed at our center in Newtown, PA.
