What Is Incontinence?


Referrals & Appointments


There are three types of incontinence (leaking of urine):

Stress Incontinence results when certain activities such as sneezing, laughing, or exercise lead to increased pressure on the bladder and result in a small amount of leakage.

Urge Incontinence, also known as overactive bladder, is a loss of bladder control following an overwhelming urge to urinate. Symptoms may also include urinary frequency and getting up often at night to urinate.

Overflow Incontinence occurs when the bladder will not empty completely, which causes an overflow, frequency and leaking of urine.
