Urinary incontinence is when you lose control of your bladder. It may not always be that bad; some people may only have a small leak occasionally, typically caused by sneezing or coughing.
However, some people may have a very strong and sudden urge to urinate and may leak immediately if they do not reach a toilet.
Urinary incontinence is usually one of the most common urological problems and diseases in older people, but it is not solely a sign of aging. It can occur in younger people as well.
There are different types of incontinence, and each can cause different symptoms, depending on the situation and type.
- Stress incontinence: Leaking urine when you lift heavy objects, sneeze, cough, laugh, etc.
- Functional incontinence: A mental or physical impairment that does not let you get to the toilet quickly (for example: severe arthritis keeps you from unbuttoning your pants fast enough)
- Overflow incontinence: Experiencing constant or frequent dribbling of urine because the bladder did not completely empty.
- Urge incontinence: Suddenly needing to urinate then losing the need. It often comes from a minor problem, like an infection, but it could also be a symptom of a more serious condition.
- Mixed incontinence: Experiencing a mixture of different types of incontinence.
