Stress Urinary Incontinence

Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) occurs because of weak pelvic floor muscles and/or a deficient urethral sphincter, causing the bladder to leak during exercise, coughing, sneezing, laughing, or any body movement which puts pressure on the bladder. A problem that affects both men and women, SUI may follow childbirth or menopause in women and prostate cancer treatment, such as radical prostatectomy, in men.
