It has been established that the lower urinary tract is sensitive to the effects of estrogen, sharing a common embryological origin with the female genital tract, the urogenital sinus. Urge urinary incontinence is more prevalent after the menopause, and the peak prevalence of stress incontinence occurs around the time of the menopause.

Estrogen, usually as part of a hormone replacement therapy (HRT) regimen, can be used for treatment of urinary incontinence in postmenopausal women.
