About Bladder Issues
The caring team at Cedarburg Family Wellness & Aesthetics empathizes with the difficulty and embarrassment patients can face with bladder issues, such as stress urinary incontinence or overactive bladder. Patients who have overactive bladder experience the frequent or sudden urge to urinate, even when the bladder is not full, which can lead to wetting accidents. Urinary incontinence, on the other hand, involves the involuntary loss of urine as a result of weakened bladder muscles. These conditions are more common as women age, especially after vaginal childbirth or menopause. To help patients improve their wellness and quality of life, board-certified OB/GYN Dr. Janice Alexander provides gynecological exams and customized treatments for bladder conditions in Cedarburg, WI.
