What is Stress Urinary Incontinence?

Your bladder and urethra (water-pipe/outlet of urine) are supported by your pelvic floor muscles and ligaments. If this support is weakened by childbirth, you may experience stress urinary incontinence. This means that urine leaks with coughing, sneezing, laughing or with lifting and exercising. Lack of hormones after the menopause may cause the tissues to become even weaker.
