This is a condition (found mainly in women) in which there is involuntary emission of urine when pressure within the abdomen increases suddenly, as in laughing, sneezing, coughing, jumping, vigorous exercise, and heavy lifting can all cause stress incontinence. It is a serious and embarrassing disorder, which can lead to social isolation.
What Causes Stress Incontinence?
There are a number of factors that can contribute to stress incontinence. Common causes are chronic coughing, weak pelvic muscles, smoking, and obesity. In women, physical changes including those from pregnancy and childbirth, bladder muscle problems and menopause can often cause urinary stress incontinence.
Your physician can determine if you have stress incontinence.
