Urge Incontinence Treatments

The most common type of incontinence is stress or urge urinary incontinence. It is most common in women and can also be called overactive bladder. Urge incontinence is when urine leaks involuntarily during coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising. It is also characterized by an urge to get to a bathroom while leakage is occurring.

Some tips to prevent urge incontinence include avoiding caffeine and alcohol, quitting smoking, and trying to limit intake of liquids.

Urge incontinence treatment options include:

  • Kegel exercises: strengthens pelvic floor muscles and can be performed in the comfort of your own home.
  • Urethral sling: a sling connected to the abdominal wall that lifts the urethra into its normal position. To learn more about urethral sling surgery, please click here.
  • InterStim Therapy: a neurostimulation device that works by stimulating your body’s sacral nerves, which control bladder and bowel function. To learn more about InterStim, please click here.
