Urinary Incontinence is when urine leaks out before you can get to a bathroom. Millions of women have this problem, especially as they get older. Some women may lose a few drops of urine when they cough or laugh. Others may feel a sudden urge to urinate and cannot control it. Urine loss can also occur during sexual activity and can cause great emotional distress.
Bladder control is a common yet complex problem that can seriously affect a woman's life. Incontinence in women is often categorized as overflow incontinence, stress incontinence, urge incontinence, or mixed incontinence. Treatment is dependent on the type of incontinence.
