The condition affects nearly 1 in 10 people and it’s especially common for post-child-birth women. Urinary incontinence can range from mild, occasional leaking to chronic uncontrolled urination and while incontinence itself is not a disease; it can be a symptom of an underlying medical condition.
Causes of Stress Urinary Incontinence
Incontinence may be a temporary problem caused by a vaginal or urinary tract infection (UTI), constipation, certain medications. Alternatively it can be considered a chronic condition.
The most common causes of chronic urinary incontinence include:
- Overactive bladder muscles
- Weakened pelvic floor muscles
- Nerve damage
- Interstitial cystitis (chronic bladder inflammation) or other bladder conditions
- A disability or limitation that makes it difficult to get to the toilet quickly
- Side effects from a prior surgery
Stress Urinary Incontinence
While there are many different types of urinary incontinence, the most common include stress incontinence and overactive bladder (also called urge incontinence).
Stress incontinence occurs when there is unexpected leakage of urine caused by pressure or sudden muscle contractions on the bladder.
This often occurs during exercise, heavy lifting, coughing, sneezing, or laughing.
Stress incontinence is the most common bladder control problem in young and middle-aged women. In younger women, the condition may be due to an inherent weakness of the pelvic floor muscles or an effect from the stress of childbirth. In middle-aged women, stress incontinence may begin to be a problem at menopause.

An 8 Minute Vaginal Rejuvenation Treatment Can Stop Stress Urinary Incontinence
Vaginal rejuvenation combines vaginoplasty (“tightening” of the vagina) and/or labiaplasty or vulvaplasty (reshaping of the vulva or labia, the outer and inner lips of the vagina). It has become an increasingly popular option for women. For individuals who desire recontouring after childbirth, significant weight loss, aging or injury to genital structures, vaginal rejuvenation offers increased self-confidence, comfort, sexual satisfaction, and a long-term solution to urinary incontinence.
