Involuntary leakage of urine. That’s what incontinence boils down to. But did you know that there are several different types of urine leakage, as well as different causes?
Millions of people experience involuntarily loss of urine. Yet, many people don’t know much about it. That’s a shame, because understanding the causes of – and types of – incontinence makes it easier to handle the condition and keep on living life to the full.
For example, if you know that you’re dealing with stress incontinence, you have a lot to gain by doing “quickness clenches” on a regular basis. And if you’re living with urge incontinence, you can practice the bladder's ability to hold urine, that means increase the amount of urine the bladder can hold and step-by-step lengthen the amount of time between voiding intervals (delay urination).
No matter the cause or type, we should open up and acknowledge incontinence more. Start with your doctor next time you see him or her. We’ve put together a list of questions that you can take with you.
