Light and stress incontinence is when you unexpectedly pass urine. It is the most common incontinence condition and mainly affects women, but men suffer from the condition also.
Those who suffer from light incontinence will only pass small amounts of urine. Pressure on the bladder from everyday actions such as laughing, coughing, sneezing or exercise may result in light incontinence. The pelvic floor muscles become weaker over time, which causes stress incontinence. Childbirth also affects the pelvic floor muscle and can happen throughout and after pregnancy.
The condition can be managed through the use of incontinence pads or pants, with a low absorbency rating.
