If you are having trouble with control of your bladder you may need to have a bladder control check up (continence assessment) to find out the cause of your bladder control problems and to help plan the best way to treat or manage the problem.
The check up is painless and you have some choices about how the check up is done. You will be asked a variety of questions about your diet, weight, medical history and general health. You may also be asked questions that seem unrelated to your condition. This is because bladder control problems are often a symptom of another disease - not a disease itself.
What can I do?
To arrange a bladder control check up, contact your doctor or other health professional. For further information see:
