Common conditions women don't talk about
Nearly 1 in 3 women experiences a pelvic health issue in her lifetime. Problems with bladder control, urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse (vaginal prolapse) are common and often life-limiting conditions rarely discussed. Many women suffer in silence, too embarrassed to talk with their doctor, thinking they are alone in these problems or incorrectly believing these conditions are just a normal part of aging. They are common, but are not normal, and most are very treatable, often without surgery or with minimally-invasive procedures.
