There are two types of urinary incontinence. The first and most common is Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI) which is the result of weak urethral muscle and support. Patients with SUI complain of incontinence with activity. The second type of incontinence is Urinary Urge Incontinence (UUI) which is the result of over active bladder muscle.
