Urologists often diagnose stress urinary incontinence in women. It occurs when small amounts of urine leak at inappropriate times. Incontinence can occur when a person is sneezing, laughing, coughing, or engaging in any other activities that exert pressure on the bladder.

Watch this animation to learn more about why stress urinary incontinence occurs. It explains the basic anatomy of the area, such as the functions of the sphincters and pelvic floor muscles. In women, stress urinary incontinence is often the result of the weakening of the pelvic floor muscles after pregnancy and childbirth.
