Understanding loss of bladder control
There are several types of urinary incontinence:
- Stress incontinence is a result of weakness in the pelvic floor muscles or changes in a women’s body due to pregnancy, childbirth, or menopause. Stress incontinence is often associated with laughing, sneezing, or other activities that increase the pressure in the abdomen.
- Urge incontinence is caused by involuntary muscle contractions around the bladder. This involuntary action has led this condition to also be called “spastic bladder” or “overactive bladder.”
- Mixed incontinence is a combination of stress and urge incontinence.
- Overflow incontinence is when the bladder leaks urine. It is usually the result of a muscular problem or an obstruction.
