What is Urinary Incontinence?
vConfidence Certified Doctors in Baton Rouge will help you figure out the underlying cause of your incontinence and recommend effective treatment. Incontinence usually occurs in women ages 20-40, oftentimes following traditional vaginal births due to the lowering of estrogen production levels. It is also more likely to happen after cancer treatment or due to genetic and age-related factors.
Incontinence occurs when the tissue generation in the muscles comes to a halt, causing the urinary tract and the bladder to become deficient. The root of the problem lies in a slow down of the collagen production cycle.
When your body is not able to produce enough hyaluronic acid, the natural cycle of your body is disrupted and collagen production drops. There are four common types of vaginal incontinence:
- Stress Incontinence – One of the most common forms of incontinence, it occurs when your bladder leaks urine due to some stressful physical activity or exertion.
- Urge Incontinence – When you have a sudden urge to urinate without any warning signals.
- Overflow Incontinence – When you involuntarily urinate without feeling the need to.
- Overactive Bladder – When a sudden urge is too difficult to resist and the involuntary leakage of urine occurs.
