Getting older doesn’t cause incontinence (loss of control of your bladder). However, changes that happen as part of aging can play a role in your bladder control.
You can help incontinence issues by making healthy changes in your diet, weight, lifestyle, and activities. Using vaginal estrogen or moisturizers may help as well. Talk to your healthcare provider about this.
