Urinary Incontinence

Stress Urinary Incontinence

Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a leakage of urine during moments of physical activity that increases abdominal pressure, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercise. SUI is the most common type of urinary incontinence in women.

Practice pelvic floor exercises. Avoid bladder irritants, such as caffeine, alcohol and acidic foods. Eat more fiber, which can prevent constipation, a cause of urinary incontinence. Don't smoke, or seek help to quit if you're a smoker.
