Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI)

Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) is a term that describes involuntary leakage of urine during activities that increase pressure in the abdomen such as coughing, sneezing, laughing or exercise. Stress incontinence occurs when the muscles and other tissues that support the bladder (pelvic floor muscles) and the muscles that regulate the release of urine (urinary sphincter) weaken. The treatment involves tightening of the Pelvic Floor muscles. The usual cause for SUI are:

  • Age.
  • Childbirth
  • Obesity
  • Pelvic surgery including and not restricted to Hysterectomy
  • Illnesses that cause chronic coughing or sneezing
  • Smoking, which can cause frequent coughing
  • High-impact activities, such as running and jumping, over many years
