Many people have problems of holding
urine until they get into a toilet. This loss of urinary
control is called "urinary incontinence"
or just "incontinence." No matter when it
happens or how often it happens, incontinence causes
great distress. It may get in the way of a good night
sleep and embarrassing when it happens during the
day. Women experience incontinence twice more often
than men. Older women, more often than younger women,
experience incontinence. But incontinence is not inevitable
with age. Incontinence is treatable and often curable
at all ages.
|If you experience
incontinence, you may feel embarrassed. Incontinence usually
occurs because of problems with muscles that help to hold
or release urine. Urination or voiding, is a complex activity.
The bladder is a balloon-like muscle that lies in the
lowest part of the abdomen. The bladder stores urine and
then releases it through the urethra, the canal that carries
urine to the outside of the body. Controlling this activity
involves nerves, muscles, the spinal cord and the brain.
| Stress Incontinence
While coughing, laughing, sneezing
or other movements that put pressure on the bladder
cause you to leak urine, you may have stress incontinence.
Physical changes resulting from pregnancy, childbirth
and menopause are common events that cause stress
incontinence. These are the most common forms of incontinence
in women and is treatable.
| Urge Incontinence
If you pass urine for no apparent reason
while suddenly feeling the need or urge to urinate,
you may have urge incontinence. The most common cause
of urge incontinence is inappropriate bladder contractions.
It results from overactive nerves controlling the
bladder. Involuntary actions of bladder muscles can
occur because of damage to the nerves of the bladder
and the nervous system such as brain tumours, strokes
or to muscles themselves including surgery. Stress
and urge incontinence often occur together in women.
It can be triggered by medications, urinary tract
infections, mental impairment, restricted mobility
and severe constipation, which can push against the
urinary tract and obstruct outflow.
| What is the treatment?
Abdominal exercises to strengthen or retrain pelvic
floor muscles and sphincter muscles can reduce stress
leakage. Women of all ages can learn and practice
the abdominal exercises, timely voiding and bladder
training can be prevented incontinence to certain
