Health Tip: Identifying Common Bladder Problems in Women

(HealthDay News) — Women may have a variety of bladder problems as they age. But many don’t seek help because they are embarrassed or believe their symptoms are a normal part of aging.

Womenshealth.gov identifies these women’s symptoms that may indicate a bladder problem:

  • Needing to go to the bathroom eight or more times per day.
  • Getting up to go to the bathroom at night.
  • Having a strong urge and fearing you might not make it to the bathroom in time.
  • Unwanted loss of urine from your bladder (urinary incontinence).
