Doctor Oz did a segment on his television show to discuss three women’s health taboos that are kept as secrets usually, but should really be discussed! One women’s health taboo has to do with incontinence or spraying urination, when your urine sprays when you pee instead of your urine going out of your body in a straight stream.
Dr. Oz said that 1 in 3 women over 40 years old have some form of incontinence. Tara has the problem of spraying urination, where your urine is not in a steady stream. Her urine sprays around 80% of the time. Dr. Oz said that only 1 in 12 women get help for incontinence or these types of issues like spraying urination. Tara said that spraying urination is so bad that she won’t even use a public bathroom, because she can’t squat on the toilet and urinate without taking off all of her clothes first, otherwise her clothes end up soaked in urine. Dr. Jill Maura Rabin, author of Mind Over Bladder: I Never Met a Bathroom I Didn’t Like!,joined Dr. Oz to help Tara with her problem.
