Incontinence is a delicate condition that can be difficult to discuss face-to-face with a doctor. If you are suffering from incontinence, you can use Rosemary for discreet online doctor visits for rescripts and ongoing management.
The most common triggers include coughing, sneezing, laughing, increased abdominal pressure and sudden physical exertion.
Several factors can also contribute to or worsen incontinence, including pregnancy and childbirth, chronic back pain, being overweight, dysfunction in the nerves or muscles that control the bladder, benign prostatic hyperplasia and trauma or injury.
It depends what the underlying condition is. There are different types of treatment options, including bladder training, pelvic floor exercises, medications and surgery.
The cause of incontinence should always be investigated so that appropriate management can be provided.
There are a number of treatments for incontinence, along with lifestyle alterations which can help.
In order to receive treatment for incontinence through Rosemary, you must already have seen a doctor, received a diagnosis and be prescribed your regular treatment by your general practitioner. An online doctor in Australia on our platform can help you access your treatment and is available to chat online about your progress whenever you need.
