Urinary Incontinence

Some women may have trouble leaking urine with common activities such as sneezing, laughing, and coughing. This is known as stress incontinence. Another type of incontinence is known as urge incontinence. This occurs when a woman feels the sudden urge to urinate. Often, she is not able to make it to the bathroom before getting wet. These are the two most common types of incontinence.

The three main types of urinary incontinence are:

  • Stress incontinence -- occurs during certain activities like coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercise.
  • Urge incontinence -- involves a strong, sudden need to urinate. Then the bladder squeezes and you lose urine. You don't have enough time after you feel the need to urinate to get to the bathroom before you do urinate.
  • Overflow incontinence -- occurs when the bladder cannot empty. This leads to dribbling.
  • Mixed incontinence -- involves more than one type of urinary incontinence.
