What are the types of incontinence?
While there are several kinds of urinary incontinence, the three most common are:
Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI): The involuntary loss of urine that occurs when pressure is suddenly placed on your bladder. This could happen when you cough, laugh, sneeze, exercise or lift a heavy item.
Urge Urinary Incontinence (UUI): A sudden, intense urge to urinate, followed by a loss of urine. With this condition, the bladder muscles squeeze at the wrong time and cause leaks.
Mixed Urinary Incontinence (MUI): When you experience both Stress and Urge Urinary Incontinence, it's called Mixed Urinary Incontinence.
