What Is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary continence occurs as a result of traditional vaginal births in women between the ages of 20 and 40 who are not affected by reduced estrogen levels. After pregnancy (postpartum) and after menopause, your estrogen level can drop or be drastically reduced. This can also occur after the treatment of cancer or trauma or even due to factors caused by genetic and other aging-related factors. When this occurs, the regeneration of the tissues of muscular structures are halted, which leads to failure of the bladder and urinary tract causing incontinence.
What all this means is that when your body slows down its collagen production cycle, you are more susceptible to develop urinary incontinence. The four major forms of urinary incontinence are:
- Stress Incontinence
- Urge Incontinence
- Overflow Incontinence
- Overactive Bladder
Stress incontinence happens when your bladder leaks urine during physical activity or exercise. It can happen anytime causing you great discomfort and embarrassment. It can occur when you cough, lift something heavy, when you are working out or simply when you change your body posture. Stress incontinence symptoms can be embarrassing for every woman, just as its name implies, stress incontinence brings stress to its victims because you will not know when your bladder will leak next.
Urge incontinence occurs when you no longer feel the natural urge to go and urinate at the appropriate time. Naturally, the body is designed to warn you whenever you need to go and urinate, giving you sufficient time to get to the bathroom. When you no longer feel that urge and your bladder leaks urine when you start to feel the urge, then your problem is urge incontinence. The urge no longer occurs and even when it does, it will be too late for you to get to the bathroom.
Whenever you find yourself leaking urine without having the urge to ease yourself or doing it involuntarily, then you should consult a specialist for you might have the overflow incontinence. This symptom can occur during the day or even while you sleep and can generally be described as the inability to control urination in women, causing great embarrassment and discomfort.
Overactive bladder is a malfunction of the bladder. When your bladder starts failing in its storage functional capacity, this will result in the urge to go and urinate. When this urge becomes very strong and difficult, it leads to the involuntary loss of urine or incontinence. When you find yourself leaking urine after a sudden urge to go and urinate, then you have an overactive bladder.
