Stress incontinence is the most common type of incontinence. It mainly occurs in younger people, especially women. Stress incontinence is defined as the complaint of involuntary leakage on effort or exertion, or sneezing or coughing. The leakage might vary from a few drops to larger amounts, but never full volume leakage. The cause of these leakages might be as a result of slack or weak pelvic muscles, constricted contraction properties of the sphincter around the urethra or hormonal changes. The cause might also be a combination of these.
Irrespective of the treatment provided, pelvic floor exercises are equally important. It might be necessary to apply smaller incontinence products such as Abri-San Mono or Abri-San Micro during the treatment.
