Women's Health Awareness Week - Stress Incontinence

Do you leak a small amount of urine when you cough, sneeze, lift, laugh or jump? Urinary Incontinence affects up to 37% of women and up to 13% of men. Stress incontinence is generally caused by a weakness of the pelvic floor muscles. In women, the pelvic floor is affected by pregnancy, childbirth and menopause.
