Urinary Incontinence In Women

What is Urinary Incontinence?

Urinary incontinence is the loss of urinary bladder control.   Although it is common in women over 60, it is not a normal part of aging. The severity ranges from occasionally leaking urine when you cough or sneeze to having an urge to urinate that's so sudden and strong you don't get to a toilet in time.  

 

How Do I Know I Have Urinary Incontinence?  (During the last 3 months, did you leak urine, even a little bit? Check all that apply.)

  •  When you were performing some physical activity such as coughing, sneezing, lifting, or exercise?
  • When you had the urge or the feeling that you needed to empty your bladder but could not get to the toilet fast enough?
  • Does leakage of urine happen without physical activity and without any warning?
  • Does it happen equally as often with physical activity, as with urge to empty your bladder?

If you answered Yes to any of these questions, continue reading.
