Stress urinary incontinence is a medical condition that mothers may experience but choose not to discuss or even consult with a doctor, for fear of embarrassment or shame. It consists of a series of temporary, fast, but very palpable urinary leaks that are triggered by ordinary things like laughter, sneezing or coughing. The lady may be in the middle of a conversation with friends or having a laughing interaction with teachers at a PTA meeting, then suddenly, she gets an involuntary spasm in their muscle down under, followed by a familiar wetness that comes with a pee. It is a very awkward and uncomfortable moment.
International Women’s Month is celebrated every March; it is the day or month to celebrate women and their achievements. And it is well-timed and vital to empower and enable them, since half of the world’s population are women. A campaign was organized for the celebration of International Women’s Month by ManilaMed titled “#SheFeelsBetter”. ManilaMed is passionate about highlighting women’s health and empowering women with accurate health information. That’s why it has a center dedicated for women – The Center for Women’s Health.
