Here, at last, women will find the most up-to-date medical explanations and state-of-the-art solutions, including: andlt;BRandgt; andlt;UL TYPE=SQUAREandgt; andlt;LIandgt;Controversial links between current childbirthing practices — like episiotomy, the use of forceps, and long labor — and the development of incontinence later in life. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;LIandgt;Advanced diagnostic tests that enable women to quickly find the most effective treatment. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;LIandgt;Nonsurgical treatments: pelvic muscle exercises and oral medications that really work. andlt;BRandgt; andlt;LIandgt;Surgical options featuring new minimally invasive outpatient procedures. andlt;/ULandgt;

Synopsis:

This authoritative, comprehensive, and compassionate look at an important issue in women's health--incontinence--provides information on a full-range of treatments, from simple exercises and medication to surgery. 32 line drawings.
