Urinary incontinence (UI) is the accidental loss of urine.UI can occur at any age, but it is more common among women over 50.. It can range from the discomfort of slight losses of urine to severe, frequent wetting.

There are different types of urinary incontinence

  • Urgency incontinence: This is the inability to hold urine long enough to reach a restroom.
  • Stress incontinence: This is the leakage of urine during  straining activities such as exercise, coughing, sneezing, laughing, lifting heavy objects or performing other body movements that put pressure on the bladder.
  • Functional incontinence: This is urine leakage due to a difficulty reaching a restroom in time because of physical conditions, such as arthritis, injury or other disabilities.
