The article presents a clinical case of a 52-year-old woman diagnosed with urinary stress incontinence (UI) and had a history of childhood sexual abuse. She underwent two previous bladder surgeries and was looking for a noninvasive approach to her urine loss. Clinical examinations revealed sensory urgency, mild uninhibited detrusor contractions, and stress UI. The patient was treated using behavioral therapies with instructions in eliminating dietary irritants and scheduled toileting.
