Stress urinary incontinence affects many women every year. It is most common in older women or women who have had multiple births. It can also be present in some women who have certain gynecological medical conditions, disorders, or cancers. Whatever the cause of your stress incontinence, there is no doubt that it is highly embarrassing and inconvenient.
Stress incontinence refers to the type of urinary incontinence in which you experience urine leakage when the bladder is put under pressure, such as when coughing, sneezing, laughing, or bending over. While some of these issues can be resolved with careful and diligent Kegels, these exercises may not completely resolve the problem.
