The loss of bladder control (also known as urinary incontinence) is a common and often embarrassing problem that can affect quality of life for women of all ages. For some it can mean occasional leaks of urine when coughing or sneezing. For others it can mean having the urge to urinate that's so sudden and strong they don't get to a toilet in time. The good news is there are helpful options available to help.
The first step is speaking with your healthcare provider. They can offer advice based on your symptoms and may refer you to the Pelvic Floor Pathway.

The Pelvic Floor Pathway clinics, offered in Saskatoon or Regina, give women education and awareness about their options, as well as improve access to conservative treatment options, multi-disciplinary specialized assessment, and follow-up care for those with persistent conditions. A telehealth option is available for the pathway orientation session, for easier initial access by those outside of Saskatchewan’s major centres.
Information on the pathway, as well as educational handouts, videos and resources can be found here -
