This may include urgency of urination, frequency of urination, ability to “hold” urine during the day or night, urinary incontinence, infrequent voiding (not urinating often), constipation or other diagnoses.
Anterior prolapse, also known as a cystocele , occurs when the supportive tissue between a woman's bladder and vaginal wall weakens and stretches, allowing the bladder to bulge into the vagina.
Relaxation of the supportive tissues of the small intestine causing it to descend and protrude into the posterior/superior vaginal wall.
The involuntary loss of urine prior to one’s being able to toilet, secondary to limitations in movement, cognition, or communication. Most common amongst elderly patients with arthritis, parkinson’s, or Alzheimer’s disease.
Hormonal imbalances occur when there is too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream. Because of their essential role in the body, even small hormonal imbalances can cause side effects throughout the body. Hormones are chemicals that are produced by glands in the endocrine system.
Involuntary loss of urine during sleep
Involuntary loss of urine associated with overdistention of the bladder.
It may or may not be associated with detrusor contraction. There tends to be continuous leakage both day and night
Pelvic pain is a complex diagnosis that can affect many different areas in the pelvic girdle, such as the bladder, abdomen, recturm, genitals, tailbone, etc.
Loss of small amount of urine after voiding appears to be complete.

>100mL urine remaining in the bladder after voiding
Difficulty experienced by an individual or a couple during any stage of a normal sexual activity, including physical pleasure, desire, preference, arousal or orgasm.
Use of raised intra-abdominal pressure (IAP) to expel urine
Involuntary loss of urine occurring in the absence of a detrusor contraction, when the intravesical pressure exceeds the maximum urethral pressure (ICS definition). This results in a small volume fluid loss, frequently a spot, and occurs at the same time as an increased IAP.
