Urinary incontinence is defined as the involuntary leakage of urine. There are three different types of urinary incontinence:
- Stress incontinence is when there is exerted pressure on the bladder causing leakage. This can be caused by coughing, laughing, sneezing, or exercising.
- Urge incontinence is the sudden, intense urge to urinate frequently.
- Mixed incontinence is a combination of both stress and urge incontinence
