We can make a diagnosis with simple tests such as a simple urinalysis, a gynecological examination and a voiding diary, as well as a pet diary. If there is urinary incontinence in the case of coughing and sneezing, and heavy activity, surgical treatment is in the foreground. But we can also treat cases of urinary incontinence with drug therapies when we cannot reach the toilet and when we are about to reach the toilet. " used the expressions.

It can also be used in a stepwise treatment. For example, the fluid intake of the patient can be controlled, and if he / she consumes too much beverages such as tea, cigarettes, alcohol and coffee, it is necessary to limit them. Again, we can give physical activities that we call slipper sole exercises. You can start with such simple procedures and then move on to more complex methods. " He spoke in the form.
