As my co-founder and I talked about how to help women overcome all the challenges of perimenopause and menopause, an idea started slowly forming on the blackboard wall of my home office. We knew that more than 70% of women in this life transition suffer from hot flashes. This is the reason we started with this menopause symptom.
One of the perimenopausal symptoms is the onset of urinary incontinence. You may begin to notice that you need to urinate more often, and start to experience leaking when your bladder is full. You may be too embarrassed to talk about this and wonder what is happening to your body. Often, women will not connect urinary incontinence to menopause problems.
