What Is Stress Incontinence

Stress incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine or stool due to sudden, intense stress on your bladder or bowels. It usually occurs when you are doing things like coughing, running, laughing, and sneezing. Although it can happen to anyone, menopausal women are more likely than other adults to develop stress incontinence because of their changing levels of hormones. Other common problems associated with ageing could be osteoporosis (a weakening and thinning in the bones) and arthritis (the inflammation and deterioration of joints).
