Urinary incontinence—the accidental release of urine—is common, especially among older women. Stress incontinence happens when youwoman sneeze, cough, laugh, or do other things that put pressure on your bladder. Urge incontinence happens when you suddenly need to urinate and can’t reach the toilet in time.
Incontinence can be caused by many things, such as weak muscles in the lower urinary tract, childbirth, and weight gain. Cutting back on caffeine, alcohol, and smoking can also help. Discover how keeping a “bladder diary” and talking with your doctor can help.
