Urinary incontinence can be stress incontinence or urge incontinence or mixed incontinence. One in three women have an urinary incontinence.
Women may experience stress incontinence. This is where the pelvic muscles and tissue have caused the bladder, and the tube that carries the urine from the bladder, to relax from its normal position.
As a result, sudden abdominal pressure from coughing, sneezing, laughing or lifting can cause accidents such as the loss of urine.
Muscles and tissues can be weakened by age, pregnancy, vaginal deliveries, obesity, hysterectomy, physical activity, smoking, family history, diet and other medical conditions.
Stress incontinence can be treated by pelvic floor exercises or urethral support sling. A small incision is made in the vagina and the mesh is inserted into the incision and placed under the urethra. Once the procedure is complete, the sling functions like a hammock.
Urge Incontinence is when there is an urge to empty the bladder very often. It can an usually be treated with pelvic floor exercises, bladder training and medication.
