Urinary Incontinence is a common bladder control among young women but can also occur in men and women of all ages.
Urinary Incontinence occurs when tissue and muscle supporting the bladder weaken. Bladder muscles can become weaker for a variety of reasons including pregnancy and child birth, injury and or existing disorders like bladder cancer, bladder stones or neurological disorders. Urinary incontinence may also occur with age or menopause.
Symptoms can include:
- Going to the bathroom 8 or more times a day.
- Waking up two or more times at night to go to the bathroom.
- Bladder control problems have changed your daily activities.
- You avoid participating in things you enjoy for fear of leaking.
- You get uncontrollable urges to go to the bathroom that you cannot ignore.
Urinary Incontinence Treatment
Urinary Incontinence treatments vary depending on the severity of a patient’s condition. Medications such as topical estrogen or Anticholinergic, which calm overactive bladders, are common treatments for urinary incontinence. Additional treatment options include physical therapy, urethral inserts and bladder training exercises. There are also surgical procedures that can help urinary incontinence if treatments aren’t working.
