Incontinence can be a little dribble or a flood and depending on the situation it can be embarrassing. Many people who experience incontinence avoid social situations in fear of potentially losing control of their bladder or bowel and the associated embarrassment if that occurs.

The decisions you make during your pregnancy may affect your bladder in the future.Pregnancy incontinence ( urinary ) affects 30-50% of all childbearing women by the age of 40, and up to 63% of women who experience stress incontinence after pregnancy (leakage when laughing, coughing, straining, sneezing, running) state it began during or after pregnancy.
