What is Urinary Incontinence?

Urinary Incontinence is the leakage of urine that is uncontrollable that can affect your emotional, psychological, and social life. Urinary Incontinence is usually associated with a medical issue that arises with age. However, it can happen also happen to women that have been pregnant and men with prostate problems.

Types of Incontinence:

  1. Urge incontinence is leakage that occurs when there is a sudden and uncontrollable need to urinate.
  2. Stress incontinence is the loss of urine that can occur with abdominal pressure such as sneezing, coughing, laughing, or changing position.
  3. Overflow incontinence happens when the bladder is full and small leaks may occur continuously.
