Women Who Inspire Us: Speaking Out About Incontinence

Katy Perry sings on stage

Urinary leakage happens to so many women. We all know it, but it's still embarrassing to talk about when it's happening to you. That's why this month we're inspired by celebrities who have opened up in the past few years about their personal experiences with incontinence. 

Actresses Helena Bonham Carter and Kate Winslet have shared that like many women, they experienced incontinence after giving birth to their children. Television star Kris Jenner has been very open about incontinence on her family's reality show. 

Singer Katy Perry has talked about her experience with incontinence in high school. Her story has helped to spread awareness and acceptance that incontinence isn't just experienced by women who are aging or have had babies. 

If you're experiencing incontinence, take some inspiration from these women and others and talk to your doctor. Treatment is available and can make a big difference in your quality of life.
