Do any of the following questions apply to you?
- Have you given birth?
- In the past 12 months, have you ever leaked when coughing, sneezing, laughing, jumping, running, lifting objects, etc?
- Do you find it necessary to use some type of protection? (i.e. napkins, pads, liners)
- Do you sometimes not make it to the bathroom fast enough, and leak urine as a result?
- In the past 12 months, after voiding do you have any post dribble/leaking?
- In the past 12 months, have you avoided any activities (i.e. exercise, family outings, social events) due to concern or fear of leakage?
- In the past 12 months, have you had any urinary tract infections/bladder infections?
- Do you get up more than once at night to urinate?
- Have you had any prior surgical procedures for urinary incontinence problems?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the questions above, you could have a type of urinary incontinence known as stress incontinence. This is a common complaint among pregnant women, and most find that it continues to bother them after giving birth. In fact, 1 out of every 3 women suffers from stress incontinence after they give birth regardless of their age.
Causes of Stress Incontinence
Normally your nerves, ligaments, and pelvic floor muscles work together to support your bladder and keep the urethra closed so urine doesn’t leak. Overstretching or injuring these during pregnancy or childbirth may cause urine leakage.
Overweight women are much more likely to develop stress urinary incontinence – many studies find this condition to be the single most important risk factor.
Women who have stress urinary incontinence during or before pregnancy are also more prone to persistent involuntary urination after delivery, sometimes lasting up to several years or even permanently.
Risk Factors for Postpartum Stress Incontinence
You may be more likely to have postpartum stress incontinence if you gave birth vaginally instead of delivering by cesarean section, but even moms who have a scheduled C-section and avoid labor altogether continue to have stress urinary incontinence after delivery.
You may also have a greater risk of postpartum stress incontinence if you:
- Had gestational diabetes
- Had an assisted vaginal delivery, particularly if forceps were used
- Had a prolonged pushing stage or a large baby
- Had previous children, especially if you delivered vaginally
Recent research suggests that genetic predisposition may play a role as well.
For some moms, leaking stops completely or becomes much less frequent within a few weeks of giving birth, while for others it can persist in varying degrees for several months, longer, or even permanently. Even the moms who stop leaking soon after birth still need therapy to strengthen the pelvic floor to prevent future complications since some develop involuntary urination – either again or for the first time – years later because the problem becomes more common with age.
The bottom line is this: Incontinence is common in women of all ages – not just older women – so you are not alone.
