REQUEST INFORMATION

What is stress incontinence?

Urinary incontinence is a condition that can affect both men and women. However, it is most common in women aged over 30. Women can suffer from various types of urinary incontinence and, varying on the condition, symptoms can come and go, or can be constant and permanent.

The most common type of urinary incontinence in women is stress incontinence or SUI. Referring to physical stress rather than mental or emotional stress, this condition is defined by the pelvic muscles becoming unable to sustain any kind of sudden additional stress—or pressure. When sudden extra pressure occurs, so does involuntary leakage.

25% to 50% of women with urinary incontinence suffer from sexual dysfunctions.

In time, women suffering from SUI can begin to feel very distressed.
Psychological problems associated with urinary incontinence include anxiety, depression, fear of intimacy, and relationship troubles.

When to seek medical help?

Many women experiencing stress incontinence suffer in silence. Feelings of embarrassment and self-consciousness overtake their emotional wellness and may lead to social isolation.

Symptoms

The main symptom is the accidental release of urine. Many people experience occasional, minor leaks of urine. Others may lose small to moderate amounts of urine more frequently. The activity and amount of leaking depends on how severe the SUI is.

Stress urinary incontinence can be provoked by the following actions:

  • Coughing
  • Sneezing
  • Laughing
  • Exercising
  • Heavy lifting
  • Sexual intercourse
  • Awkward movement (getting out of a car, for example)

In most cases, the symptoms can be treated and sexual performance can be restored.

Book a consultation to open up the discussion.

Noninvasive, durable treatments for SUI are available.

Causes of stress incontinence

In most cases, stress incontinence in women is caused by childbirth and pregnancy, menopause, obesity, or consequences of medical treatments such as surgery (hysterectomy) or chemotherapy. In all cases, stress incontinence emerges when pelvic muscles become weakened.

Bladder control problems may be caused by:

  • Weak muscles in the lower urinary tract.
  • Problems or damage either in the urinary tract or in the nerves that control urination.
Quality of life issues

Urinary incontinence has a far-reaching effect on women’s lives impacting their professional, mental and social well-being. The secondary impacts can include:

  • Reduced sexual activity
  • Avoiding going out in public
  • Becoming isolated
  • Struggling with depression
  • The condition is linked to an increase in falls and fractures among elderly women.
  • Skin problems. Rashes, skin infections and sores can develop from constantly wet skin.
  • Urinary tract infections. Incontinence increases your risk of repeated urinary tract infections.
  • Impacts on your personal life. Urinary incontinence can affect your social, work and personal relationships.
