Giggle Incontinence

Introduction[edit | edit source]

Giggle Incontinence(GI) is characterized by involuntary, sudden and unpredicted loss of urine. Loss continues until the bladder is completely empty even if giggling ceases. Essentially, voiding does not occur during any strain, cough, sneeze . This phenomenon is termed giggle micturition,1 enuresis risoria2 or GI.[1]
