Stress Urinary Incontinence

 

Stress urinary incontinence is urine leakage that occurs with increases in abdominal pressure (physical “stress”) from activities such as coughing, sneezing and exercising and is an extremely common , burdensome and costly condition for women in Australia, with a negative impact on a women’s quality of life. Non-surgical measures such as pelvic floor muscle training and behavioural modifications are useful treatment options in alleviating symptoms in some women, although many proceed with surgery, which is a more effective treatment.
