Urinary incontinence: dare to talk about it

The HUG Gynecology Division offers adapted and personalized diagnostic and therapeutic care for women with urinary incontinence.It is estimated that between 20 and 40% of women, depending on age, suffer from urinary incontinence. This condition affects about 500,000 women in Switzerland. However, because it is a source of embarrassment and feelings of shame, urinary incontinence is still taboo and most women do not dare to talk about it with their physician.

Certaines affections de la vessie, comme un cancer ou une perte de la fonction de vidange des urines peuvent nécessiter son ablation et son remplacement par un conduit appelé stomie.
