Urinary Incontinence

Urinary Incontinence

Introduction

Urinary incontinence refers to the involuntary passing of urine. It is a common problem that has affected people all over the world. There are two types of urinary incontinence that patients can have separately, or even both.

Stress incontinence is referred to when urine passes involuntarily when you laugh or cough. The bladder is put in the way of pressure. Damage to the urethral sphincter can cause stress incontinence. Urge incontinence is when you have a sudden urge to urinate, but urine has seeped out at that moment, or afterwards. An overactive detrusor muscle that helps control the bladder is known to cause urge incontinence. There are factors that can increase the risk of developing this condition.
