One in three women suffer from some form of urinary incontinence. It was once thought that only menopausal women and women post childbirth suffered from urinary incontinence.  This is not the case.  According to WebMD, 20%-30% of young women and 30%-40% of middle-aged women experience some form of urinary incontinence.  This can also be triggered by exercise. A recent research study found that one-quarter of collegiate female athletes who've never had children experience urinary incontinence while participating in their sport.
