Urinary Incontinence (UI)

21:06 EDT 21st September 2017 | BioPortfolio

Urinary incontinence (UI) is loss of bladder control. Symptoms can range from mild leaking to uncontrollable wetting. It can happen to anyone, but it becomes more common with age. Women experience UI twice as often as men.

Stress incontinence

Most bladder control problems happen when muscles are too weak or too active. If the muscles that keep your bladder closed are weak, you may have accidents when you sneeze, laugh or lift a heavy object.

Urge incontinence or overactive bladder (OAB)

If bladder muscles become too active, you may feel a strong urge to go to the bathroom when you have little urine in your bladder.

Other causes of incontinence

Prostate problems and nerve damage.

Treatment depends on the type of problem you have and what best fits your lifestyle. It may include simple exercises, medicines, special devices or procedures prescribed by your doctor, or surgery.
