Did you know that November is Bladder Health Awareness Month?
Each day, millions of Americans struggle with the impacts of bladder conditions and diseases such as urinary incontinence, overactive and underactive bladder, interstitial cystitis, urinary tract infections, nocturia, bladder cancer, urotrauma, and neurogenic bladder. These can impact an individual’s health, quality of life, and result in significant health costs.
Add to these symptoms the problem of dealing with these health problems from a social angle – many find issues like OAB difficult to discuss and often fall prey to social isolation as a way to avoid embarrassment. We want you to know – you are not alone. It doesn’t have to stay that way. And when it comes to talking to your pelvic floor specialist about your health concerns, we assure you, you’ll always feel safe and heard – not judged.
Bladder Health Month is a great time to focus on connecting, educating, and empowering individuals to take control of their bladder health. Most Americans are still not yet talking to their healthcare provider about their bladder health symptoms because they are too embarrassed, but several bladder conditions can be treated through simple lifestyle changes, behavior modifications, or diet and exercise.
Awareness is critical when it comes to reducing the stigma associated with incontinence and other bladder health conditions and symptoms.
