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).
