Symptoms of Urinary Incontinence (UI) in Women
There are several types of urinary incontinence, so not every woman will experience symptoms in exactly the same way.
- Stress incontinence is a common form of UI, causing the release of a few drops or even a small stream of urine when you cough, laugh, sneeze, or otherwise exert pressure on your bladder.
- Some women feel a sudden, intense urge to urinate, followed by a sudden loss of urine—this is known as urge incontinence.
- Some women may even experience more than one type of UI, known as mixed incontinence.
If you experience any of these symptoms, you likely have a form of UI. A common cause of UI is the weakening of the pelvic floor muscles, nerves, and other tissues in the pelvic region as a result of childbirth, menopause, and other events.
