Dr. Blaivas explains that urinary leakage during coughing, sneezing, or exercise is called stress urinary incontinence, with stress defined as physical and not emotional stress. Weak sphincter muscles and/or bladder contractions can both cause stress urinary incontinence in a patient. Jerry Blaivas, MD: Urinary leakage when you cough or sneeze or exercise or do aerobics is called stress urinary incontinence. The stress refers not to any psychological or emotional stress, but to physical stress, the jostling or the moving around. In order to understand it, you need to understand how the bladder and the sphincter usually work, so I will try to show that to you in a very easy to understand manner. So if you make a fist and you put it in front of you and you stick your thumb out, your fist is the bladder and your thumb is like the urethra. Around the urethra are some muscles called the sphincter, so this sphincter simply grasp the urethra and that stays closed all the time. Ordinarily, when you urinate, the bladder contracts and the urethra opens and the sphincter opens. When you are not trying to urinate, the sphincter should stay closed all the time and no matter how much you cough or sneeze or jump or do anything that sphincter should really stay closed. What happens with stress incontinence most of the time is that the sphincter muscle is a bit weak, so when you cough or sneeze, there is a little bit of movement and when it moves the sphincter is loose so it opens up a little bit and the urine leaks out. That is called stress or sphincteric incontinence. Now from a strictly scientific standpoint, there is another cause of stress incontinence because the stress refers to the coughing, sneezing aspect of it. Sometimes when that happens, when you cough or sneeze, it actually makes the bladder contract and you start to urinate without control. That is also technically stress incontinence but we usually use the word stress incontinence to mean sphincter weakness. So how do we diagnose it because before we treat it, we need to diagnose it? Well, I always think it is a good idea for a patient to keep a keep diary for 24 hours where they record the time and the amount of each urination and when it comes to any kind of incontinence, we recommend something called a Pad test, where you simply wear a pad to protect yourself and then bring that pad with you the next day. The doctor could just either weigh it or just simply look at it to get some sense of how much urine you leak. But the most important aspect is simply to examine you with a full bladder. So you will come into the office, we will wait until your bladder is comfortably full, the doctor will have you lie down on a table, put your legs in stirrups so that your hips are flexed and your knees reflex and then he will simply look at the vagina when you cough and sneeze and if he sees a spurt of urine coming out or even worse than that, then that is the diagnosis of stress incontinence. Now there is a lot of other tests we can do to give us more information about the specifics of it, but if you have the complaint that you leak urine during these physical exercise kinds of things and the doctor sees that you leak urine when you cough or sneeze, that is stress incontinence. What to do about it? Well, there are a lot of things you can do about it and the treatments are very very effective. There is very simple kind of treatments, behavioural approaches at the one end, and at the other end, are surgical treatments, but no matter which treatment you choose, you can almost always be treated to your own level of satisfaction. For patients who want to be dry all of the time, the surgeries work almost all the time in terms of either improving you very much or actually curing you, and if you do not want surgery or you want to try some simpler things how to manage yourself, there are a lot of behavioral approaches that can be used that are very often based on this bladder diary but no matter what approach you choose, rest assured that in the hands of a competent physician, your stress urinary incontinence can always be treated to your own level of satisfaction.
