In women, stress incontinence (involuntary loss of urine during physical activity such as sneezing or exercise) is usually caused by a weakening of the bladder sphincter and pelvic floor muscles. Shrinkage (atrophy) of tissues where the bladder and urethra meet also contributes to the problem. Hormonal changes occurring after menopause are thought to be an underlying cause of these anatomical changes in the bladder sphincter that lead to urinary incontinence.

Drug Insight: 5alpha-reductase inhibitors for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia.
TLDR
5ARIs are the only currently available medical therapy that can reduce the risk of AUR and BPH-related surgery while providing long-term symptom control, which provides a mandate for their use in men with enlarged prostates (volume >or=30 ml), who are at increased risk of disease progression.
[Relation between benign prostatic hyperplasia and obesity and estrogen].
TLDR
It is suggested that estrogen may play a pathophysiologic role in benign prostatic hyperplasia and obesity has been hypothesized to be associated with BPH because of the endocrine changes in men that occur with age, including increased estrogen and decreased testosterone.
Sleep duration and the risk of prostate cancer: the Ohsaki Cohort Study
TLDR
In a prospective study of prostate cancer incidence, sleep duration was associated with lower risk; the multivariate hazard ratio of men who slept ⩾9 h per day compared with those who slept less was 0.48.
Pain as a mediator of sleep problems in arthritis and other chronic conditions.
TLDR
In multivariate regression analyses, the addition of pain decreased the effect of arthritis by 53% (insomnia symptoms) and 64% (unrefreshing sleep), suggesting that pain is a partial mediator of these relationships.

TLDR
An overview of the incidence and severity of sleep disturbance in cancer patients, a review of the mechanisms of sleep, and the potential factors associated with the pathogenesis of cancer-related insomnia are explored.
Women’s Early Warning Symptoms of Acute Myocardial Infarction
TLDR
Most women have prodromal symptoms before acute myocardial infarction (AMI), and it remains unknown whether prodromeal symptoms are predictive of future events.
A prospective study of sleep duration and coronary heart disease in women.
TLDR
Short and long self-reported sleep durations are independently associated with a modestly increased risk of coronary events.
