Types of Urinary Incontinence

STRESS INCONTINENCE. When urine leakage occurs with increases in abdominal pressure it is known as stress incontinence. Weak or stretched muscles in the pelvic floor fail to provide the support needed to hold in urine. Many women with stress incontinence complain of leaks caused by straining with coughing, laughing, sneezing, and exercising.

URGE INCONTINENCE (OVERACTIVE BLADDER). With urge incontinence, urine leaks occur when the bladder muscles contract at the wrong time, day or night. The bladder may not even be full when the contractions happen. Learn more about Overactive Bladder (OAB).

OVERFLOW INCONTINENCE. When you are unable to completely empty your bladder, it may result in overflow , with unexpected or even continuous leakage. This can cause kidney damage and increased risk of infection.

MIXED INCONTINENCE. Women often experience a combination of symptoms associated with both urge and stress incontinence. When this occurs, our doctors treat each symptom to help improve quality of life.
