What Causes Stress Urinary Incontinence?

Stress urinary incontinence is caused either by the weakening of the pelvic floor support, which results from pregnancy, childbirth and menopause, or by the intrinsic loss of normal urethral function. Conditions that increase the intra-abdominal pressure may further worsen the problem, like obesity, prolonged coughing, constipation and heavy lifting.

Who Can I Consult?

  • Gynaecologist
  • Urogynaecologist: A gynaecologist with further training in common bladder disorders and pelvic floor dysfunction.
  • Urologist: A surgeon who is trained in managing bladder and kidney disorders.
