Thanks for your question. Generally speaking, there are two main types of incontinence. The first is caused by a weakness of the pelvic floor, known as stress incontinence. The second is brought on by over-activity of the bladder itself, known as urge incontinence. Stress incontinence can sometimes be managed conservatively with pelvic floor exercises and other measures. Sometimes it requires surgery.
