How to Cut to the Chase

4 months ago

Hi, I'm new here and am wondering which treatments really work, instead of trying a bunch of things that don't--like a lot of folks here seem to have done. Do the medications work for anyone? What are the side effects? Does the Bulkamid procedure work for most people? What about exercises/physical therapy? I can't get an appointment with a urogynecologist until the end of November, so I don't want to waste a lot of time trying things that don't work. I've been having OAB and occasional urge incontinence for years, but recently it is much worse and I seem to be leaking now. What can I do before I see the doctor? Thanks for your help, I don't know where to start!
