Incontinence and menopause with Meg Mathews

Two in three women over the age of 40 will struggle with some form of urinary incontinence problem, but menopause also has its part to play.

To shine a light on incontinence, we’re launching the first of a special three-part series, in collaboration with Pelviva.

In episode one, Brit pop icon Meg Mathews chats to Liz about her own experience of incontinence and explains the work she’s doing to bust this and other taboos around menopause.
