Study Confirms Incontinence Can Also Affect Sexually Active Young Women

Having a baby is not the only way you can suffer from urinary incontinence. A recent study published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine claims that the problem is just as common in young women who have never been pregnant.
Previous studies had shown that 12% of women the same age who have given birth have issues of incontinence. For the new study, researchers surveyed 1,002 women between the ages of 16 to 30 who had never been pregnant, and found that 12.6% of them had issues with incontinence.
The highest rate of incontinence was found among sexually active women who were not taking birth control pills. Age, BMI, and history of urinary tract infections were not factors in their leakage, but similar feelings of "shame, and fear of embarrassment as a result of the condition," led researchers to conclude that incontinence could influence women's mental health.
