What is Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI)?
Stress Urinary Incontinence is when you experience leaks caused by coughing, sneezing, laughing, jumping or heavy lifting. These simple movements put pressure on the bladder and, should your pelvic floor muscles be unable to tighten, will cause a leak. Stress incontinence is the most common type of female bladder weakness. It can occur at any age, but is most common during pregnancy, after childbirth and during menopause. 1
