Is urinary incontinence a condition specific to men or women?

Urinary incontinence is a condition which affects both men and women.

Urinary incontinence is not necessarily specific for men or for women, but the female anatomy does have higher chances of acquiring this problem. Urinary incontinence will often coincide with pregnancy and childbirth, because of the pressure that the growing uterus will cause to the bladder. It is a condition that is associated with prostate problems as well, and that makes men equally susceptible to this problem.
