Stress Urinary Incontinence


Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) is the involuntary leakage of urine during activities such as coughing, sneezing, lifting, laughing or exercising. SUI affects at least 10-20% of women, many of whom do not realize that there are simple, effective treatment options available.
SUI affects the quality of women’s lives in many ways.  Incontinence may limit women’s social and personal relationships as well as limiting physical activity.
