While the likelihood of experiencing urinary incontinence increases with age, it is not considered normal by any means, and can interfere with work, socializing, exercise, and sexual function. Urinary incontinence can be caused by a urethra that does not compress tightly enough (stress urinary incontinence), the bladder muscle contracting inappropriately (urge urinary incontinence), and urinary retention or the inability to urinate (overflow urinary incontinence).
