What is incontinence?
Millions of women have sudden urine loss or stress urinary incontinence. The condition causes them to leak urine when they laugh, sneeze, cough, or during exercise. Although so many women experience sudden urine loss, most women are not aware that it is a treatable condition. Women may suffer in silence and put off activities that they enjoy.
Female stress urinary incontinence is caused in part by an improperly functioning urethra. Unlike other types of incontinence, stress urinary incontinence is not a problem of the bladder.
Normally, the urethra maintains a tight seal to prevent involuntary loss of urine. In a woman with stress urinary incontinence, muscle and pelvic tissue weakened by childbirth or other causes, are unable to adequately support the urethra in its correct position. As a result, when pressure is exerted on the bladder from the diaphragm during sudden movements, the urethra cannot maintain its seal and urine escapes.
