Incontinence is fairly common among women, yet we don’t talk about it.

At HerMD we want to end the shame stigma around women’s healthcare topics- and that starts by normalizing the conversation around issues like incontinence. Pee when you sneeze? Rushing to the bathroom because you might not make it? You may have incontinence, but guess what? Other women are experiencing it too and you don’t have to just live with it.

What exactly is incontinence?

Urinary incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine. Just a few drops of urine, or complete emptying of the bladder, can occur with incontinence.
