Managing mixed incontinence

Managing mixed incontinence

If you have a combination of stress incontinence, urgency incontinence and overactive bladder (whether or not this is causing incontinence) your treatment should be started according to whether the stress incontinence symptoms or the urgency incontinence symptoms are most troublesome. You should be offered less invasive treatments first (see first steps for managing stress incontinence and first steps for managing overactive bladder and urgency incontinence).

If your main symptom is stress incontinence, your healthcare professional should talk to you about the benefits of lifestyle changes, non-surgical treatments and drugs before offering you surgery.
