Urinary Incontinence and Treatment Options

Urinary Incontinence and Treatment Options

Urinary incontinence, or leakage of urine, is something that affects millions of us. It is so common that many feel it is a fact of life, and we simply have to learn to adjust. But that’s not true - there are several treatment options available.

There are three common types of incontinence: urge and stress, overflow. Many times, a mix of the three!

Resources to help you in difficult times

If you or someone you love is struggling, the Oregon Health Authority suggests these resources for anyone needing emotional or mental health assistance as a result of the pandemic.

  • This site will also provide you with current updates as to what's happening in your county and around the state.
  • Call the Safe + Strong Helpline at 800-923-4357 (800-923-HELP). The line offers free, 24-7 emotional support and resource referral to anyone who needs it — not only those experiencing a mental health crisis.

WHC All Together and 6′ Apart

First 'in person' staff meeting at Women's Health Center since February. Outside together in the chilly morning but 6' apart! A creative solution to collaborating as a team, encouraging each other and helping the women in our community. Awesome way to start the day!

Tips for Coping During a Time of Stress

The current COVID 19 outbreak can understandably cause stress for many people. Taking care of yourself, your family and friends will help make our community stronger. Some ways to help you cope include:

  1. Take breaks from watching, reading or listening to news stories, including social media.  Being bombarded with information - both true and not-factual can be unnecessarily upsetting. Listen to music instead. 
  2. Take care of your body and mind by stopping throughout the day to take a few deep breaths, stretch or meditate.  There are a lot of free meditation apps like Calm and Mindfulness that can help guide you.
  3. Love on your dog or cat.  Pets are known to reduce stress!
  4. Be mindful of your eating and try to eat balanced, healthy meals.  This is the perfect time to eat together as a family. Yes, treats are OK too, but don't over eat or rely on junk food. 
  5. Fresh air will do wonders for you. Exercise, walk your dog, hike, garden outside.  "Have coffee" with your neighbor in your own separate yards. 
  6. Get plenty of sleep.
  7. Talk about other things with family and friends besides this crisis.  If you do discuss it, share accurate information from trusted sources like the CDC, not your neighbor's uncle who knows someone who knows someone. Misinformation creates unnecessary stress.
  8. Practice gratitude for what you have.
