Stress urinary incontinence (SUI) is the unintentional loss of urine with activities such as sneezing, laughing, and coughing. Reports vary regarding age groups affected by SUI. Surveys were randomly distributed to women ages 18-35 in the family practice setting, in order to determine the incidence and reporting of SUI. It was found that there is a relationship between vaginal delivery and incidence of SUI. The percentage of women who reported symptoms of SUI to their health care professionals was 26.1.
