Stress incontinence can occur when lifting, sneezing, coughing, laughing, or exercising. Urge incontinence is the unwanted and sudden need to urinate. Both can be caused or exacerbated by childbirth, obesity, excessive exercise, lack of exercise, age or trauma.
According to the National Association of Continence, up to 30 million women in America have experienced bladder leakage issues. About one in four new mothers experience "leaking" following normal delivery, and about one in six following cesarean section.
An Overactive Bladder is when there is more of an urgency and frequency of urination. Up to two-thirds of women who "leak" have never mentioned it to their physicians, and up to two-thirds of women do not use any treatment or product to manage their bladder leakage.
