Depend...: Incontinence can be urge, stress, or mixed, or can be fecal or urinary. Here, let's talk about stress urinary incontinence (SUI) only - resulting from weakened urinary sphincter which is usually related with childbirth, pelvic surgery, aging, etc. in females and with prostate surgery in males.
