In brief: Stress Incontinence

(sui) is caused by weakness in the support and function of the urethra - which normally acts as a valve to hold urine in the bladder until you want to pee.
There are safe and effective treatments for most people with sui. Pelvic floor physical therapy and urethral sling surgery are the mainstays. Consult with a urologist or urogynecologist.
