Stress Urinary Incontinence

« Back to Glossary Index

Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is a type of urinary incontinence that occurs when physical movement or activity, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercise, puts pressure (stress) on your bladder. This pressure can cause you to leak urine. SUI is the most common type of urinary incontinence in women. It is caused by weakened pelvic floor muscles and tissues that support the bladder and urethra. Treatment for SUI may include lifestyle changes, pelvic floor muscle exercises, medications, or surgery.
