Menopausal urinary incontinence to a urologist

A medical examination at a hospital

If you suffer from urinary incontinence during menopause, go to a urologist. There are various causes of urinary incontinence during menopause, including hypersensitivity of the bladder and weakening of the muscles around the bladder.

When the bladder becomes irritable, an irresistible urge to urinate suddenly occurs, leading to incontinence and inability to use the toilet in time.

Also, during menopause, female hormones decrease and the muscle strength that supports the pelvic area decreases. When the power to support the pelvis is reduced, it becomes difficult to control the bladder and symptoms of frequent urination are more likely to occur.

Frequent urination is caused not only by a decrease in female hormones, but also by diseases and mental disorders. If you suffer from urinary incontinence during menopause, please see a urologist for a correct diagnosis.
