Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is the unintentional release of urine during normal everyday activities. If you have stress urinary incontinence (S.U.I.), you may lose urine when you:

  • Laugh, sneeze, cough
  • Exercise, jump, run, do sports of any type
  • Lift or push anything heavy
  • Get up from a seated or lying position

A weakening of the muscles of the pelvic floor causes S.U.I. These pelvic muscles support the lower urinary tract, the bladder and urethra (the tube from the bladder where the urine leaves the body). If the pelvic muscles are weakened, most often the result of childbirth, they cannot hold the urethra in its correct
position, so any movement that puts pressure on the
bladder (sneeze, cough, etc.) will allow urine to
escape. Most common causes of S.U.I.:

  • Childbirth
  • Pelvic surgery
  • Hormone deficiency
