Women who leak with coughing, sneezing or activity most likely have Stress Urinary Incontinence. This common type of bladder leaking affects around 1 out of 8 women and most commonly occurs after childbirth. Because it commonly occurs with activities that cause straining or effort, many women will limit exercise or other enjoyable activities. It impacts quality of life by discouraging social activities or exercise due to fear of having bladder leaking. Many times non-surgical treatment options can aid in improving quality of life, but some women may choose to have surgery to correct the problem.
