Stress Urinary Incontinence or SUI is the involuntary loss of urine due to exertion during activity. Any activity that puts pressure on the urinary tract may cause a leak when you have SUI. The activities that can trigger leaks when you have SUI can be anything from running and jumping to sneezing or laughing. Stress incontinence, also known as Light Bladder Leaks (LBL) occurs when the muscles that support the bladder and the muscles that regulate the release of urine are weakened. This loss of muscle can come about for varying reasons: childbirth, obesity, aging, and surgery. While talking about SUI is often embarrassing, having discussions about how it impacts different aspects of women's lives is important, including how it affects our relationships.
