Talk to Your Doctor

If your incontinence doesn’t respond to at-home therapy, you may need medical treatment or surgery. Some options are:

  • Biofeedback, a monitor that records the control of pelvic floor muscles to help with training.
  • A pessary, a device that fits in the vagina to support the bladder and prevent leaks.
  • A catheter, a tube hooked to a bag that catches urine.
  • Medications like mirabegron (Myrbetriq) to help with overactive bladder, and Botox injections. Women going through menopause may try estrogen.
  • Surgery is rare but can help when there’s a blockage or the bladder is in an unusual position.
