Stress Incontinence in Women

You're laughing and having a good time when you unexpectedly leak. Unfortunately, the same might happen when you cough, sneeze, jump or lift heavy loads. These symptoms indicate that you may be dealing with stress incontinence, the most common type of urinary incontinence (UI) in women.

Stress incontinence in women occurs when the pelvic floor muscles that support the bladder become weak. Laughing, jumping, coughing or lifting something heavy increases the pressure on the bladder, and the pelvic floor muscles cannot stretch enough to hold all the urine. Usually, only tiny amounts of urine come out.

Kegel exercises can train the pelvic floor muscles to contain leaks more effectively. Symptoms can also be managed with liners, pads or protective underwear. Speak to our Client Coordinators to discuss a full range of products to help give you peace of mind. No one should have to cut their laugh short because of an unexpected leak!
