Women with urinary incontinence who enjoy their regular cup of coffee or tea do not have to worry about the caffeine.

Research funded by the National Institutes of Health finds the extra caffeine does not make the condition worse.

It's been unclear whether a daily caffeine habit is tied to worsening incontinence over the long run.

This report in the Journal Obstetrics and Gynecology says they did not find a connection after following patients for two years

The findings cannot say whether caffeine might have a short term impact by making women need to go sooner.
