Stress urinary incontinence is a disorder where the sphincter pelvic muscles weaken and allow for the bladder to leak small amounts of fluid when muscle spasms occur from coughing, sneezing, laughing, or other similar actions. Pelvic organ prolapse is similar to stress urinary incontinence and happens when weakening occurs in the pelvic floor muscles making them incapable of supporting organs like the uterus and bladder.
