013: Problems with the plumbing: Difficulty peeing

There are many types of chronic female urinary incontinence: stress incontinence, which occurs when you sneeze, cough, laugh, jog, or do other things that put pressure on your bladder; urge incontinence, which happens when you have a strong need to urinate but can’t reach the toilet in time; and overflow incontinence, which is an inability to completely empty your bladder. Everyone uses their bladder many times each day, but they may not know what to do to keep their bladder healthy. Dr. Oakley breaks it all down in this episode on common bladder problems. The Lady Bod Podcast is presented by St. Elizabeth Healthcare and Physicians.
