Urinary incontinence


Urinary incontinence

It is the loss of the ability to control urination frequently and involuntarily. Urine may come close or far between, such as when sneezing or laughing. This situation may be an emergency because of some abnormalities in the urinary system, and it may be permanent and cause a lot of embarrassment to the person with it.

Causes of urinary incontinence:

Weakness of the bladder and pelvic muscles is the first and most important factor of incontinence in men and women alike, as the muscles controlling contraction of the urethra become weakened, which results in it passing urine into the urethra easily. Urinary problems such as urinary tract infections also contribute to the presence of a disorder in the pelvic muscles especially in women who are postpartum. Distress and psychological pressure may play a role in its occurrence as well.
