Urinary Incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine which is objectively demonstrable and causes a social or hygienic problem. It is estimated that anywhere between 25-70% of women suffer from this problem. However the prevalence of urinary incontinence in the community has been severely underestimated. This is because 40% women feel embarrassed to talk about this problem to their doctors and >60% women perceived urine loss as a normal consequence of ageing. Less than half the individuals living in the community with Urinary Incontinence seek treatment.
