Nearly 35 million women suffer from stress urinary incontinence, which causes involuntary loss of urine when physical movements, such as laughing, coughing or sneezing, put pressure on the bladder.
Stress urinary incontinence can occur for a number of reasons, urologist Dr. Jennifer Berman explains, including weakened pelvic floor muscles following pregnancy and childbirth, urethral thinning due to menopause, and excess pressure on the bladder due to obesity.
