Urinary Incontinence

One in two women will suffer from incontinence at some point in her life.  This condition is not age defined however only one in four will undergo diagnosis and treatment. Many women never receive treatment because they are embarrassed to discuss the problem with their physician.

The four most common types of female urinary incontinence are:

  • Stress urinary incontinence is leakage of urine, a small to moderate amount, with physical activity. Such activities can include coughing, sneezing, laughing, standing and lifting among others and is the most common type of incontinence.
  • Urge urinary incontinence also known as overactive bladder is the unintentional leakages of urine preceded by urge to urinate.
  • Mixed urinary incontinence is a combination of both stress and urges incontinence.
  • Overflow incontinence is leakage of urine due to a bladder that is too full.
