Urinary incontinence is uncontrollable urine leakage. Your kidneys make urine and your bladder stores it. Your bladder muscles tighten when you need to urinate, and urine exits your body through the urethra. When you suffer from urinary incontinence, your surrounding pelvic floor muscles aren’t strong enough to hold the urethra shut when urine is in your bladder.
Urinary incontinence is a loss of bladder control that’s categorized into two main types: stress incontinence and urge incontinence. Stress incontinence is the most common kind of urinary incontinence, affecting both younger and older women.
Stress incontinence occurs when you have weak pelvic floor muscles that put pressure on your bladder. The pressure makes it difficult for your bladder and urethra to work properly, and actions like laughing, sneezing, or coughing can cause you to accidentally leak urine.
Urge incontinence is bladder leakage that is characterized by a strong urge to urinate. Sometimes called overactive bladder (OAB), urge incontinence can become a problem if you feel the need to urinate more than eight times a day or can’t get to the bathroom before your bladder begins to leak.
Urinary incontinence can have several causes. It affects women twice as much as men, in part because pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause weaken pelvic muscles and increase your chances of developing incontinence.
Some other causes of urinary incontinence include:
