Q. Are there different forms of urinary incontinence?
There are several types of urinary incontinence:
Ÿ If urine leaks when you sneeze, cough, laugh or put pressure on the bladder in other ways, you have stress incontinence.
Ÿ When you can't hold urine, you have urge incontinence.
Ÿ When small amounts of urine leak from a bladder that is always full, you have overflow incontinence.
Ÿ Many seniors who have normal bladder control but have difficulty getting to the bathroom in time, have functional incontinence.
