Stress urinary incontinence, or SUI, is a part of the daily lives of so many women, but we rarely see attention given to it in the media so women can learn they’re not alone. Recently, though, PBS aired a half-hour long episode of their show “Healthy Body, Healthy Mind” dedicated entirely to the subject! Entitled “Managing Female Stress Urinary Incontinence,” the episode featured not only doctors discussing the condition, but women talking about their experiences with it. You can watch the entire episode here, on the American Medical Systems website. Watch and tell us what you think and what you learn!
