Action point


It's not only coughing, laughing, or jumping up and down that can cause people to leak urine (stress incontinence).

About 3 out of 10 people with incontinence have urge incontinence.

This is a sudden, intense urge to urinate, which can be brought on by infection, diabetes or a neurological disorder.

Visit our Incontinence Centre for more on managing this condition.
