Over 15 million women in the United States (nearly 1 in 3 women over the age of 18) suffer from unexpected bladder leaks - also known as Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI)1.
This can happen during normal physical activities such as:
SUI affects women of all ages including young mothers, pre-menopausal women, and seniors.
SUI can greatly diminish a woman’s quality of life, and often limits professional, social, sexual, and recreational activities.
SUI occurs when abdominal pressure ‘pushes’ on the bladder during physical activities causing urine to leak. As the animation (to the right) shows, the sudden increases in bladder pressure results in urine loss.
