Have you heard of Stress Urinary Incontinence?
What is Incontinence?
Incontinence can occur in men of all ages from young to adulthood. Incontinence is defined as the process of involuntary leaking urine and male urinary incontinence is usually caused by damage to the sphincter or an improperly functioning bladder.
What is Stress Incontinence?
Stress Urinary Incontinence or SUI for short, is the involuntary leakage of urine upon pressure such as coughing, sneezing or exertion.
Stress incontinence is most often caused by a weakening of or damage to the muscles used to prevent urination such as your pelvic floor muscles or urethral sphincter. The pressure inside your bladder as it fills with urine becomes greater than the strength of your urethra to stay closed and so, any sudden extra pressure on your bladder such as that caused by laughing or sneezing will cause urine to leak out of your urethra.
