is there risk of causing incontinence when have trigger injections to pudendal nerve?

Very unlikely: Pudendal nerve blocks are generally quite safe. Potential adverse effects are uncommon but may include pain at the injection site, bleeding, infection, and/or numbness in the buttocks, perineum, and vaginal/genital region. New onset incontinence would be quite rare.
