Stress urinary incontinence: This is a bladder control problem that occurs when urine leaks during physical activities. When stress is placed on the bladder during laughter or physical activity, pressure in the abdomen rises, often resulting in leakage in the form of spurts of urine.
Urge incontinence or overactive bladder: This occurs when a woman has a sudden and strong urge to urinate and leaks on herself before she can get to the toilet.
Recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs): Some women are prone to developing recurrent bladder infections (having more than three infections per year). Many women with pelvic floor disorders suffer from recurrent UTIs.
Interstitial cystitis: This is a condition that results in recurring discomfort or pain in the bladder and the surrounding pelvic region. The symptoms vary from case to case. Women may experience pressure, tenderness or intense pain in the bladder and pelvic area. Symptoms usually include very frequent urination, urgency or bladder irritation, as well as pain during intercourse.
