We need to talk about incontinence: Kiwi women scared to laugh in case of leakage
According to a recent article in Stuff:
“Stress” incontinence, the most common type of the condition, occurs when movement such as sneezing, laughing, exercising and heavy lifting puts pressure on the bladder.
It goes on to say that women routinely avoid “happiness moments and social contact” to avoid an accident.
Fortunately there is a way to address the problem.
