Can I still work out?
Yes, you can still work out and lead an active lifestyle with incontinence. You just need the right protective hygiene product to help manage the leaks.
Stress incontinence is characterized by light bladder leaks: just a few droplets or occasional dribbles. Stress incontinence occurs when physical movements or activities like sneezing, coughing, laughing, and exercising place pressure on the bladder, causing light leakage. Despite common misconceptions, stress incontinence is not related to psychological or emotional stress.
