Even though urinary incontinence is an embarrassing condition, it is also very common. More prevalent with age, urinary incontinence is a condition where bladder control is lost. Indicators of urinary incontinence range from spotting to mild leaking to uncontainable urination.
Urinary incontinence can be categorized as either "stress incontinence" or "overactive bladder".
The treatment for urinary incontinence depends on the type of incontinence and the severity of the condition. Treatments include: pelvic floor muscle exercises to strengthen the muscles, bladder training to delay urination after you get the sudden urge, medications, surgery or wearing pads, adult diapers, protective clothing, etc. Be sure to speak to your doctor to see which treatment method is right for you.
