Urinary incontinence -- accidental urine leakage -- may be an occasional, slight problem, or it can become a severe health condition.
What are the types of urinary incontinence and how you can tell the difference?
The two most common types of urinary incontinence are:
Stress incontinence: if you are leaking when coughing, sneezing, laughing, lifting something heavy, jumping, running or with physical activity in general then you have stress urinary incontinence. About 50% of all women who experience urinary leakage have this condition.
Urgency incontinence, or overactive bladder: Urine leaks when you have a strong urge to urinate. If you are leaking on the way to the bathroom, or right after you have a strong urge to void then you likely suffer from urge urinary incontinence (about 20-25% of all women with urinary leakage have this condition)
