Question: Could I Have More Than One Type Of Urinary Incontinence?
Answer: If you’ve read about the different types of urinary incontinence, you may wonder if you could have more than one type. The fact is that women frequently have more than one type of urinary incontinence. Stress incontinence and urge incontinence are the two most common types of urinary incontinence to occur together, and mixed incontinence (of any types) is the most common type of urinary incontinence in women.
