What is stress urinary incontinence?
Stress urinary incontinence, or SUI, is the sudden, unintentional release of urine during normal, everyday activities. You may have SUI if you lose urine when you:
Cough, sneeze or laugh
Walk, exercise or lift something
Get up from a seated or lying position
You may also go to the bathroom frequently during the day to avoid accidents. If you are experiencing sudden urine loss, it means your urethra (the tube from the bladder through which urine exits the body) does not stay closed until it's time to urinate. Any movement that puts pressure on the bladder (such as sneezing or running) may cause the urethra to lose its seal and allows urine to escape.
