Center for Urogynecology and Women's Pelvic Health

Bladder training is an important form of behavior therapy that can be effective in treating urinary incontinence. Learn more here.
Urinary incontinence is the involuntary loss of large or small amounts of urine, and it is thought to affect 13 million Americans. Learn more here.
