Leakage of urine in women

Friday, 28 June 2024

Customer question:

Is urine leakage more common in women than in men? Anonymous customer's question

Pharmacist's answer:

Yes, leakage of urine is more common in women than in men.

This is partly due to anatomical differences between the sexes. Women have a shorter urethra than men, which can increase the risk of various forms of incontinence, such as stress incontinence (related to physical exertion) and urge incontinence (related to an uncontrollable urge to urinate). In addition, pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause can further affect the pelvic floor muscles in women, which can contribute to the more frequent occurrence of this problem.

How many pregnant women struggle with urine leakage?

Pregnancy-associated urinary incontinence is a well-defined clinical condition, but its prevalence varies by geographic area and assessment methodology. It can affect 35-67% of women during pregnancy and 15-45% of women after childbirth (source: https://obgyn.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/ijgo.15003)
