In brief: No
While many types of incontinence are more common as we age, but incontinence is a problem that can affect people of all ages.
Incontinence is not a normal part of getting older. Incontinence may be a sign of a more serious medical condition and should always be evaluated by your healthcare provider. Many causes of incontinence can be treated and corrected.
