Bladder Leaks

Do you have symptoms such as bladder leaks, urge to urinate, overactive bladder, frequent waking up to go pee?

Have you ever wondered why some people are unable to “hold” urine?

Urinary incontinence refers to the loss of bladder control and can range in severity. It can be characterized by occasional leakage during activities like coughing or sneezing (stress incontinence), a strong urge to urinate that is difficult to control (urge incontinence), constant dribbling due to incomplete bladder emptying (overflow incontinence), or difficulty reaching the toilet in time (functional incontinence). It can affect both men and women of all ages.

Though this condition is more prevalent as individuals age, it is essential to understand that urinary incontinence is not inevitable. People across all age groups can experience this issue for various reasons, such as infection, neurological disorder, or diabetes. Urinary incontinence can significantly restrict daily activities and social interactions, potentially impairing the quality of life. Therefore, seeking medical help is crucial if incontinence is frequent or significantly affecting your life. Besides age, factors such as childbirth, menopause, or enlarged skene glands may increase the risk of urinary incontinence.

Frequently Asked Questions
A strong urge to urinate, also called urinary urgency, is often caused by conditions like urinary incontinence. It can be triggered by treatable medical conditions such as urinary tract infections (UTIs) or constipation. UTIs can irritate the bladder, leading to a sudden need to urinate and sometimes incontinence. Constipation can also cause urinary urgency because the rectum and bladder share nerves, which can result in similar symptoms.
Overactive bladder (OAB), also known as urge incontinence, is a condition where individuals experience sudden, strong urges to urinate, leading to unexpected urine leakage. People with OAB may need to urinate frequently, typically more than eight times a day, and may also wake up multiple times during the night to urinate. Certain triggers, such as the sound or touch of running water, can provoke a strong urge to urinate in individuals with OAB.
