Incontinence doesn't have to be your embarrassing little secret!
At MaineGeneral we realize that millions of women in the U.S. suffer from bladder control issues. Many of them are too embarrassed to talk to their healthcare provider about their symptoms. This is a problem that affects not only the elderly, but also women in their 20s, 30s and 40s. Seeking help through our incontinence program gives you the information you want about the issues, the personal attention you desire and the confidentiality you need.
