coughing or sneezing. Stress incontinence is the most common type of incontinence, and
women seem to out number men in the number of reported cases by 60%.

cause of urge incontinence is an overactive bladder.

communicating their need to urinate, or they suffer a physical disability that physically prevents
them from caring for their bathroom needs.
