Female Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence (involuntary loss of urine) is more common in women than in men and can result from pregnancy and childbirth, menopause or other factors. Older women are more likely to experience urinary incontinence than younger women.

Female urinary incontinence is a special interest of Washington University urologists, who treat the condition at both Barnes-Jewish West County Hospital and Barnes-Jewish Hospital. They offer women who have incontinence, urgency, frequent urination or bladder pain a range of nonsurgical and surgical options.
