How can I get help?

Let’s be honest: on the list of things to avoid, talking to a healthcare professional about intimate medical problems comes pretty high up. It is of course a misplaced worry (incontinence is a common problem faced by millions of people and dealt with on a daily basis by thousands of doctors, nurses, midwives, physiotherapists and other specialists), but this doesn’t stop us feeling nervous at the thought of having the conversation ourselves. In this section, you’ll find tools and advice on how to talk to your healthcare professional with a little more confidence. At the end of the day, it’s worth it when you consider how your life could change with an effective treatment.
