Urinary incontinence: dare to talk about it

The HUG Gynecology Division offers adapted and personalized diagnostic and therapeutic care for women with urinary incontinence.It is estimated that between 20 and 40% of women, depending on age, suffer from urinary incontinence. This condition affects about 500,000 women in Switzerland. However, because it is a source of embarrassment and feelings of shame, urinary incontinence is still taboo and most women do not dare to talk about it with their physician.
