Treatment

The treatment you and your doctor choose will depend on the type of incontinence you have, and how much your symptoms bother you.

Behavioral changes, such as changes to your diet, lifestyle, and urinary habits, are often enough to control incontinence

Different medications may be used to treat various types of incontinence; sometimes stopping or changing a medication can be the answer.

Surgery is the best treatment for some men who have incontinence.

Other ways to manage incontinence include behavioral therapy, self-caterization, and the use of absorbent products.
