yes, it can

absolutely

sometimes vaginal atrophy or atrophic vaginitis can contribute to the problem of incontinence

do you know if you have this problem or not?

Do you have vaginal dryness?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
No
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 months ago.

Okay

then vagifem would not work for you

is this what you were wondering?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Why not ?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 months ago.

because you don't have vaginal dryness

it only helps if there is vaginal dryness as part or all of the cause of incontinence
