Treatment for stress incontinence (continence care)

Stress urinary incontinence is defined as a sudden unintentional loss of urine during normal day to day activities. If you have this problem you may notice leakage if you laugh, cough, sneeze, walk, exercise, or lift something.

I have a question about treatment for stress incontinence

What is treatment for stress incontinence?

Your bladder and urethra are supported by your pelvic floor muscles and ligaments. If this support is weakened, urine leaks with coughing, sneezing, laughing or with lifting and exercising.

Why would I have treatment for stress incontinence?

If you find that urine is leaking when you cough, sneeze, laugh or with other exertion.

What should I expect after treatment for stress incontinence?

Depending on the treatment you choose, you will be given information on what to expect after your treatment. You will be referred to the Gynae/Urology Specialist nurses after procedures for bladder retraining, pelvic floor muscle exercises and further advice about aftercare.
