Urinary incontinence is when our bladder unintentionally passes urine. There are several different types of incontinence and these include:
- Stress incontinence: Caused when there is direct pressure on the bladder creating leakage e.g actions such as laughing, crying, coughing
- Overflow incontinence: Caused when the bladder is unable to completely empty.
- Urge incontinence: When urine leaks an individual can seek the sudden desperate urge tp pass urine.
- Total incontinence: The bladder is unable to contain any urine at all and this causes constant leaking or passing of urine
Incontinence can be caused by a variety of factors and these include things such as childbirth, obesity and age. Non surgical treatments are available and these revolve around exercises and lifestyle changes. The main medications used to treat incontinence are based around antimuscarinics.
