Urinary incontinence is the inability to control the release of urine from your bladder. Our doctors can administer a bladder function test, which is typically performed for women who have problems with incontinence (involuntary loss of urine), urgency or frequent urination.
Types of urinary incontinence include:
Stress Incontinence (the loss of urine when you exert stress on your bladder by coughing, sneezing, laughing, exercising or lifting something heavy)
Urge Incontinence (a sudden, intense urge to urinate, followed by an involuntary loss of urine)
Overflow Incontinence (an inability to empty your bladder, accompanied by a frequent or constant dribble of urine)
Mixed Incontinence (affected by one or more type of incontinence)
