You can address urine leakage:
Treating Stress Urinary
Incontinence (SUI)


The first time you leaked urine when you laughed or sneezed, you may have chalked it up as a simple accident.

But when any pressure at all — coughing, picking up something heavy, exercise — causes recurring bladder leakage, you may have started wearing pantiliners, sanitary pads or dark clothing, scoping out bathrooms in new places, even sticking closer to home — anything to shield you from embarrassment.

If you’ve been struggling with incontinence, you’re not alone – and help may be available through an outpatient medical treatment. Why keep planning your life around leakage if you don’t have to?

A treatable problem

Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is treatable. Stress urinary incontinence is a condition in which sudden movements put stress on the bladder, causing urine to leak out involuntarily. While there are several types of incontinence, stress urinary incontinence is the most common, affecting 1 in 3 women, many of them after childbirth.1
