Urinary incontinence may be treated with medicines.
But in many cases, treatment with
behavioral methods (bladder training, timed urination) and Kegel exercises are tried before
medicines. These treatments, when combined with medicine, may help some women more than either treatment alone.
Botox is given as a shot to help relax the bladder
muscles. You may need to get a shot every 3 months. Side effects may include having pain when you urinate, not being
able to urinate easily, and getting a urinary tract infection (UTI). If you get a Botox shot, you may need to
take antibiotics to reduce your risk for getting a UTI.
