Urinary incontinence is the inability to control your bladder, leading to an involuntary loss of urine. The severity varies for women.
Incontinence is caused by either weak sphincter muscles or a neurological issue where the brain isn’t properly signaling the bladder. In some cases, it may be both.
Certain conditions also increase the risk of urinary incontinence, including childbirth, menopause, inactivity, obesity, and pelvic organ prolapse.
