Many women find themselves in the unfortunate situation of being incontinent as a result of pregnancy and childbirth.
Urinary incontinence at some point during pregnancy is not unusual for most women. The involuntary leaking of urine, whether it is light or heavy, frequent or infrequent varies from woman to woman and from pregnancy to pregnancy.
Urinary incontinence is the term used to describe uncontrollable leakage of urine. There are four major categories of incontinence, which include urge incontinence, stress incontinence, overflow incontinence and functional incontinence.
When you experience a sudden and strong need to urinate, your body causes your bladder to contract violently, leading to urine leakage.
