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?

    I highly, highly recommend this practice – especially for people who are neurodivergent and/or who have anxieties around receiving medical care. All staff members were pleasant to interact with; I let the medical assistant know that I’m typically a hard stick, but bless her, she got it in one try. I wish I could give them more than five stars!
