What is stress incontinence?

In stress incontinence, urine leaks out occasionally when doing such things as coughing, sneezing, lifting, or exercising because the increase in pressure in the abdomen puts 'stress' on the bladder

Stress incontinence is usually caused by a lack of support for the bladder because the pelvic floor muscles have been stretched or weakened by childbirth. The situation is often made worse following the menopause because the lack of oestrogen causes the vaginal muscles to slacken and atrophy.

Being overweight or diabetic can also be contributory factors.

The symptoms can be cured completely in the vast majority of cases by keeping your pelvic floor muscles string and healthy with regular, effective exercise.
