Urinary incontinence affects twice as many people with uteruses as people without. This is because reproductive health events like pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause affect the bladder, urethra, and other muscles that support these organs. Urinary incontinence can happen at any age, but it is more common as we grow older. In fact, more than 4 in 10 women 65 and older have urinary incontinence. Yet, it can be treated.
