Urinary Incontinence in Women

Understanding Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine, affecting millions of women worldwide. It can range from occasional leaks when you sneeze or cough to a sudden, intense urge to urinate that doesn’t allow you enough time to get to a bathroom. While it can be an uncomfortable and embarrassing problem, it’s important to know that you are not alone and there are effective treatments available.

Types of Urinary Incontinence

  1. Stress Incontinence: Leakage occurs during physical activities that put pressure on your bladder, such as coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising.
  2. Urge Incontinence: Also known as overactive bladder, this type is characterized by a sudden, intense urge to urinate followed by involuntary leakage.
  3. Mixed Incontinence: This involves symptoms of both stress and urge incontinence.
  4. Overflow Incontinence: This occurs when your bladder doesn’t empty completely, leading to overflow and leakage.
  5. Functional Incontinence: Physical or mental impairments prevent you from reaching the toilet in time.
