Urinary incontinence is not just a normal part of aging or the result of giving birth to a child. It's a condition that can affect every aspect of your life and has many different causes. Some are simple and temporary. Others are more long-term and may require more involved solutions. A urogynecologist can usually treat this condition, and in many cases eliminate it entirely.

Kegel exercises are a great way to strengthen your pelvic floor muscles. However, a weak muscle isn't always the cause of the problem. If the pelvic floor muscles are not the source of your problem or if your muscles are already too tight, Kegel exercises won't help.
