Stress Incontinence in Women

 

DO YOU HAVE URINE LEAKAGE WHEN YOU EXERCISE?
HAVE YOU EVER SNEEZED OR LAUGHED SO HARD THAT YOU LEAKED URINE?
DO YOU HAVE BLADDER CONTROL ISSUES BUT ARE TOO EMBARRASSED TO TALK TO A DOCTOR?

 

If you answered yes to one or all of these questions, you are not alone. You may have a common bladder control problem called Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI). SUI is the involuntary loss or leakage of urine that occurs during physical activity such as exercise, laughing, coughing, and sneezing. The “stress” is added pressure on your bladder. Women who have SUI have weak pelvic muscles that can allow urine to leak when a cough, sneeze, or other action puts pressure on the bladder.

Stress Incontinence is Common in Women

In fact, 1 in 3 adult women has stress urinary incontinence, which is the most common type of bladder control problem among women. SUI, however, is not just a normal part of aging and can affect women of all ages.
