What is Incontinence?

Incontinence refers to a loss of bladder control that results in an involuntary leakage of urine. It is a physical inconvenience with emotional repercussions – people often internalize shame and embarrassment towards the condition.

Prevalence of Incontinence

Incontinence is a common condition among women, especially after childbirth and with aging. The statistical number is likely under-reported as many women avoid diagnosis due to embarrassment.

Women are twice as likely to suffer from incontinence than men.

1 in 2 women suffer from incontinence after pregnancy and childbirth.

Causes

Urinary Incontinence can be caused by daily habits, medical conditions, urinary tract infections or physical problems. It can also be a result of too much stress imposed on the pelvic floor – through factors such as pregnancy, excessive weight, chronic constipation and cough.

Factors that increase the risk of developing urinary incontinence include:

  • Age : The natural ageing process and hormonal changes cause muscles to weaken over time.
  • Weight : Being overweight increases pressure on the bladder and pelvic floor, weakening the muscles.
  • Smoking : Tobacco use may increase your risk.
  • Family History : If a close family member has incontinence, your chances of developing it is higher.
  • Diseases : Diseases such as Diabetes may increase your risk.
