Stress incontinence and pelvic floor dysfunction

Men and women of all ages can suffer from incontinence, although women are particularly prone.  But, in nearly all cases, the condition is treatable or preventable.

The most common form is in stress, whereby the bladder leaks when put under pressure, for example with a cough or a sneeze, when playing sport or during intercourse.  Weakness may follow childbirth, though constipation, a chronic cough or being overweight may be factors.  The other form is urge incontinence whereby a person has a sudden need to go to the toilet and in the rush the bladder leaks.  This is often caused by an infection or bladder irritation.
