INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE INCONTINENCE DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

        

What is incontinence during pregnancy?

Incontinence is a lack of, or impaired, control over your urination, or bowels. For each of these categories, there are different types of incontinence. Urination incontinence, for instance, includes stress incontinence (urine leaks during activities that increase the pressure in your abdomen, such as sneezing, coughing, laughing, and exercise), urge incontinence (you have sudden urges to urinate and large amounts of urine come out), overflow incontinence (urine dribbles out frequently), and reflex incontinence (filling and stretching of the bladder triggers urine outflow), plus there are various combinations of incontinence types.
