I am a 45yr old female and i have recently finished going through the menopause. Recently i have been having a massive urge to use the toilet to urinate, but before i reach the loo, i have already had an accident. This has also happened a few times when i have been out shopping or with friends. As you can imagine, i am so embarrassed and afraid. I am still quite young and i have a really active busy life. It is now making me feel like i do not want to leave the house. Some of my friends have said that this could be due to the menopause. Is this right? What can i do to treat this problem? Do i speak with my doctor and consider surgery or do i go down the route of buying products? Help!!
Phew, thank you for setting my mind at rest. I was starting to feel very isolated thinking this was just a me thing. I will have a chat with my doctor and see if we can come up with a solution.
