Urinary incontinence isn't always preventable. However, to help decrease your risk:

  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Practice pelvic floor exercises, especially during pregnancy
  • Avoid bladder irritants, such as caffeine and acidic foods
  • Eat more fiber, which can prevent constipation, a cause of urinary incontinence
