What is Incontinence?

Incontinence, or the loss of bladder control, is a common and often embarrassing problem. Incontinence is not a disease but rather the symptom of an underlying condition caused by everyday habits, or other medical or physical problems. The severity of urinary incontinence ranges from leaking a small amount of urine when pressure is placed on the bladder to experiencing an overwhelming urge to urinate so strong and sudden you don’t make it to bathroom in time. It’s important to note that urinary incontinence is not necessarily an inevitable consequence of aging although older people can and often do suffer from one or more types of incontinence.

What are the Types and Symptoms of Incontinence?

There are four main types of incontinence: stress incontinence, urge incontinence, overflow incontinence and overactive bladder (OAB). Stress incontinence happens when pressure is placed on the bladder, for example, when coughing, sneezing, laughing or lifting heavy objects. Urge incontinence is characterized by an overwhelming need to urinate, followed by an involuntary loss of urine. A minor infection, or other more severe conditions such as diabetes can cause urge incontinence. Overflow incontinence happens when a bladder does not empty completely and frequent or constant dribbling of urine occurs. An overact bladder (OAB) means the bladder muscle contracts too soon causing urine to be released before the bladder is completely full.
