Here, at last, women will find the most up-to-date medical explanations and state-of-the-art solutions, including:
Controversial links between current childbirthing practices -- like episiotomy, the use of forceps, and long labor -- and the development of incontinence later in life.

Extremely Informative and Helpful Jan 17, 2006
I stumbled upon this book in a used book store just as I was searching for answers that my doctor was unable to give. It was very helpful in answering questions on all types of female urology problems including surgery and non-surgery solutions, how to find the best doctor, what you can do to help yourself, diagnosis, etc. It helped me find a doctor and a solution and I still rely on it as a great source of information. It is very easy to read and gives a person hope!
Pleased Sep 1, 2005
Reviewing the book helped save me the time and expense of going to see a health professional.However,if my problem hadn't been resolved,I certainly would have sought medical help.
