An unintentional loss of urine is called, urinary incontinence. Stress incontinence is caused when a physical movement or activity puts pressure (stress) on the bladder. Female stress incontinence is very common, and, in many cases, can be treated. Women in their 30s and beyond can be susceptible to this condition. Certain physical changes that can occur during pregnancy, childbirth, and also menopause, can result in stress incontinence. Throughout these events, muscles and ligaments that support the bladder can become weakened, eventually causing urine to leak into the urethra during moments of physical stress. Stress can be created through simple daily acts such as lifting an object, sneezing, coughing, even laughing, or any similar activities that put pressure on the bladder. In this program we will give dialogue to a topic that many of those affected often feel too embarrassed to discuss. We’ll meet with medical experts and their patients, as they define this common condition and how it is managed. (3202)
