What is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is the unintentional passing of urine or leaking of urine. It is a common problem, especially among women, and it is estimated that between 3 and 6 million people in the UK alone are sufferers. Severe incontinence increases with age.
23% of women affected by the problem put off seeking help because of embarrassment.
Urinary incontinence is a symptom rather than a condition.
