Urinary Incontinence is a condition that could affect anyone. However, females are twice as likely to suffer from incontinence than males due to pregnancy, childbirth and hormonal changes during menopause.
Incontinence occurs when the pelvic floor muscles are weak and are unable to support bladder and bowel control. This often occurs due to childbirth, aging, hormonal changes, surgery, chronic cough, chronic constipation or prostate-related issues in men.
Types of incontinence include:
- Functional incontinence is when physical or mental impairment keeps you from making it to the toilet in time despite the awareness of the need to relieve yourself.
- Stress incontinence is a leakage with physical exertion such as laughing, sneezing, coughing or sexual activity.
- Overflow incontinence is when you experience frequent or constant dribbling of urine due to an inability to empty the bladder completely.
- Urge incontinence is when you feel a strong urge to urinate even when your bladder is not full. This may be related to an overactive bladder which is classified as the need to urinate with a frequency that is greater than 8 to 9 times within a span of 24 hours.
Fecal incontinence is the inability to control bowel movement, causing stool to leak unexpectedly from the rectum. This can range from an occasional leakage of stool while passing gas to a complete loss of bowel control.
