What is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is a common condition that involves the involuntary loss of urine. Over half of women will experience urinary incontinence at some point in their life. Although it may not be medically serious, it makes life a lot harder and can make for many embarrassing situations.
There are three common types of urinary incontinence:
Stress incontinence: Urine leakage that occurs when a motion that puts pressure on the bladder is performed. It could be jumping, sneezing, coughing, laughing, running, or any other form of exercise.
Urge incontinence: Urine leakage that occurs when one has an urge to urinate but can't make it to the bathroom in time.
Overflow incontinence: Also commonly know as incomplete bladder voiding. Leakage that occurs from a bladder that doesn't completely empty as it should.
