Notes: 
Includes bibliographical references and index. --- Review, June 2003: Urinary incontinence (UI) is one of those prevalent conditions that people joke about, as in this book's title. But loss of bladder control isn't very funny. UI can cause women to avoid laughing for fear of losing control, or lead to chronic sleep deprivation from waking up hourly to pee. It can even confine them to their homes for fear of losing control in public. "I laughed so hard I peed my pants!" is an easy to follow self-help guide to UI, written by Winnipeg physiotherapist Kelli Berzuk. With clear illustrations and straightforward prose, Berzuk explains the physiology of bladder control, and presents a step-by step approach to preventing and treating UI. While she stresses that prevention is important, there is plenty of hope for women who already suffer UI. Many women can significantly improve their control by doing pelvic floor exercises and avoiding bladder irritants in their diet. Berzuk's book will be a useful guide for any women seeking to understand and deal with this issue.
