Continence management is an important issue for millions of women who struggle silently with incontinence. In a high percentage of cases, incontinence can be reduced or stopped. The Mid Dakota Clinic Center for Women offers a full treatment program, with evaluation, testing, and treatment of bladder problems.

Our Approach
The Pelvic Health & Continence Program at the Center for Women combines the expertise of a physician assistant specially trained in continence management, board certified OB/GYN doctors, and a physical therapist trained in Women's Health to determine the best treatment for you. Testing, called urodynamics, may be done to give a more detailed evaluation of the bladder. Based on the results of your history and tests, we will develop a treatment plan just for you.

Your doctor may refer you to the Center for Women Pelvic Health & Continence Program or you may make an appointment yourself. Call (701) 530-6001, toll-free 1-855-530-6001. For more information, call (701) 530-6186 or 1-800-472-2113 ext. 6186.

Be Yourself Again
The Center for Women doctors and staff have an important message for women who suffer from incontinence: You are not alone, and there is help available.
Women dealing with incontinence may feel alone or depressed, too embarrassed to speak up, or don't know where to turn for help. But there’s no need for them to suffer in silence. The important thing women should know is leaking, at any age, is not normal. We want them to be comfortable talking about their concerns, and we want them to know with the help of women's health professionals like us, patients often feel like they have a new lease on life.
On average, 30 percent of all women will deal with some sort of incontinence issue in their lifetime, and despite common misperceptions, incontinence is not a problem only associated with aging. We see patients of all ages with incontinence concerns, from children to the elderly, including many patients between the ages of 30 and 50 who may be experiencing pelvic problems following the birth of a child. Delivering a baby can bring about many changes in the body, and not just with incontinence. In fact, pregnancy and delivery can create concerns in the entire pelvic region. The good news is that we're treating more women now because there are more treatment options available.

Due to the variety of women's health concerns, our program has diversified over the years. We don’t just see women with urinary leakage anymore. We see a variety of problems related to women’s pelvic health, including: pelvic and bladder pain, painful intercourse, fecal incontinence, and prolapse, just to name a few. The program name even changed recently from Continence Management Program to Pelvic Health & Continence Program to better represent the wide variety of services provided.
A lot of women don’t seek help for mild problems and the Center for Women would like to change that.  Many women put off seeking help for years until it gets to a point where the problems are interfering with their daily lives. We understand that most women don’t want to talk about them, but we can’t reach solutions unless we ask direct questions. We take great care in building a relationship with our patients, and they trust us which allows health issues to be appropriately addressed and patients can usually begin to be themselves again.
