Incontinence is a condition that may occur in several different ways. Stress urinary incontinence is the most common, often occurring in women who are pregnant, had child birth or those who are menopausal. Bladder leakage in stress urinary incontinence occurs when the bladder is squeezed under the pressure and a weakened sphincter muscle cannot function properly.

Understandably, many people do not like the idea of discussing bladder control issues.
