Urinary incontinence is the inability to control one’s urination which could then lead to urine leakage or loss of urine. It is an involuntary leakage of urine. It is estimated that about 25 million Americans are affected by urinary incontinence.
Urinary incontinence can be split into three main categories;
Urge Incontinence: This occurs when an overactive bladder causes an intense urge to urinate. Thus, causing involuntary urine leakage.
Stress Incontinence: This occurs when activities such as exercise, jumping, sneezing, and coughing exert pressure on the bladder causing it to release urine.
Overflow Incontinence: This is an inability to completely empty the bladder causing frequent minute urination.
Factors that can lead to urinary incontinence include age, enlarged prostate, menopause, urinary tract infections, urinary stones, weakened pelvic floor muscles and constipation.
