Do you worry you will have an urinary accident if you
sneeze, laugh, exercise, cough or walk?
You may suffer from stress urinary incontinence (SUI), is is the most common type of urinary incontinence. SUI is when urine leaks out when activities such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, exercise, heavy lifting, etc., put pressure on your bladder causing it to leak. It occurs when the muscles and other tissues that support the urethra (pelvic floor muscles) and the muscles that control the release of urine (urinary sphincter) weaken.
SUI is a common bladder problem for women. About a third of women under 60 and about 1/2 of women over 65 find they they sometimes leak urine. Childbirth, age, and obesity are common risk factors. Smoking, chronic coughing, and high impact activities over many years may worsen stress incontinence.
Stress incontinence may affect your daily life and social activities. You may be concerned to participate in activities with family and friends for fear of an “accident”. Dealing with it can be frustrating and embarrassing, fortunately there are treatment options available to help you regain bladder control. Don’t be afraid or embarrassed to talk to your healthcare team.
