Sexual Incontinence Needs Attention, Researchers Say

Nov 21, 2017

Sexual Incontinence Needs Attention, Researchers SaySexual incontinence – urine leakage during sexual activities – can be treated effectively, but many people aren’t aware of their options, a new study suggests.

They reviewed medical literature on the subject published between 1996 and 2017 and identified three types of sexual incontinence. Foreplay incontinence occurs before any type of penetration. Coital incontinence happens during intercourse. And climacturia is urine leakage during orgasm.

Sexual incontinence can happen to both men and women, who may or may not have other types of urinary incontinence, such as overactive bladder.
