What Is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control, which results in urine being involuntarily leaked. It can occur at any time but typically happens as you age. In many cases, urinary incontinence can develop following childbirth or menopause. There are a few different types, including:
- Stress Incontinence: This can occur when pressure is placed on the bladder by physical exertion, such as coughing, sneezing, or laughing.
- Urge Incontinence: Commonly known as overactive bladder (OAB), this happens when you have an urgent need to urinate, even though your bladder is not full.
- Mixed Incontinence: This is a combination of stress incontinence and OAB.
- Overflow Incontinence: When you are not able to empty your bladder completely, it leads to an overflow that leaks out. This occurs more often in men due to problems with the prostate.

Metro Atlanta Urology and Pelvic Health Center Reviews
I met Dr. Wilson thru a referral before a prolapsed uterus that was causing me to have difficulty passing my urine. She treated me like I was family. She told me what my options were and made sure that I understood. Covid lockdowns pulled the plug on my plans and Dr. Wilson moved her practice north out of Atlanta. It took me several months to find her after Covid restrictions were lifted. She was the doctor that I trusted my body and my life with. She is warm, caring. professional individual, who just happens to be the best doctor for the job. I highly recommend her for anyone who needs help with GYN and Urology issues. She is wonderful!
Dr. Wilson is amazing great wonderful doctor she will pay attention all the your concerns and words She’s care about her patients Actually all the Georgia Urology doctors are great doctors and staff members are very friendly and helpful
She's about the most personable, nicest, caring, down to earth doctor I have ever met in any medical field. I love her to pieces. I want to invite her over for dinner. -Wanda Massey
