Female incontinence is the loss of bladder control in women. Urine loss is common during pregnancy and when suffering from urinary tract infections.
Female incontinence is classified into three types:
- Urge incontinence: Urge incontinence occurs when a woman feels the need to urinate frequently. They have urine leakage when they are experiencing this urge.
- Stress incontinence: Women who suffer from stress incontinence, also known as physical or exertion incontinence, may experience urine leakage when coughing, laughing, exercising, or sneezing.
- Mixed incontinence: Many women suffer from a combination of stress and urge incontinence.
An overactive urge to urinate or an inability to control urination while laughing, sneezing, or coughing can be symptoms of incontinence.
