In this episode we will be touching on a rarely discussed but common health condition affecting many women at different stages of life: urinary incontinence. 

We will delve into this topic with Dr. Annick Poirier, a urogynecologist working in Edmonton with expertise in the area of pelvic prolapse and other urogynecological concerns. She will share with us the types of urinary incontinence that people may experience, as well as what the various risk factors are and how this condition can be managed with lifestyle modifications, physical therapy, and special medical support devices called pessaries.
