Laughing so hard you leak can be common, but when it happens regularly, it can be a sign of a bigger issue. Frequent urination, loss of bladder control or sudden, extreme urges to go to the bathroom could point to urinary incontinence or overactive bladder (OAB).
Whether it’s an overactive bladder, urinary incontinence or fecal incontinence, our urogynecology team offers a variety of treatments to help stop the leaks and help you feel comfortable and in control again. Find a urogynecology specialist.
Overactive bladder can lead to urinary incontinence, and it’s important to seek treatment for bladder control issues early to help get you back on track.
Possible causes include:
Urinary incontinence can be diagnosed by performing urodynamic testing (urodynamics) to assess how well the bladder and urethra are storing and releasing urine.
Urodynamic testing involves a series of tests that reproduce bladder and voiding capabilities, evaluate the function of your bladder and urethra, and accurately identify and diagnose underlying bladder problems.
Other diagnostic OAB or incontinence testing may include:
