I have experienced incontinence off and on over the last 10 years, but recently, it was all the time and increasing amounts. Kegel didn't help. II have had bladder cancer (removed and treated -- one year no incidents), but that had been abated. However, the increased incontinence began after the last checkup with an office scoping of my bladder. I couldn't figure out how they were related, but would ask at the next follow up appointment. Then, a few days ago, I read the Dr.'s column in our local paper and it addressed the issue of incontinence after menopause. Eureka! It stated that local application of hormone therapy (vaginally), helps restore the plasticity of the urethra so that the structure can operate properly. I had been given Vagifem from my OB, but had discontinued use after a few months. So, I decided to start using it again and can't believe that it immediately offered relief the next day! It has been two days with no incontinence. Amazing! And, grateful to have found that newspaper article.
