World continence week is June 19 - 25. It aims to challenge the myth that incontinence is an inevitable part of childbirth or getting old. It encourages people to seek help rather that suffer in silence. Yes - incontinence can be associated with pregnancy, childbirth and menopause, but it can affect women of all ages, causing social isolation, financial stress and anxiety.
