Factors of incontinence

Posted by Raymond on 11/22/2013
Incontinence is thought to affect over 25 million Americans. This widely overlooked problem is often ignored as people don't like to talk about it. It's often thought that only old people can suffer from incontinence. This is not true, as incontinence can affect people of all ages. Many people think that this form of leakage is normal. This is not the case. While incontinence is not a serious condition, it is still worth seeing a doctor about if there's a serious problem. Women often associate the leakage with their menstrual cycle and thus pass it off as being normal. The downplaying of the issue often goes undressed, with men and women both assuming that a certain amount of leakage is just part of life.

A number of reasons exist which ranges from eating habits and irregularity to prescription drugs and pregnancy.

Incontinence is mainly caused by overactive bladder (OAB) or stress incontinence and refers to the muscles that are responsible for releasing or holding urine. Overactive bladder occurs when urinary muscle spasms cause an immediate urgency to urinate. Stress incontinence, which occurs more often in women, is when urine leakage can occur when coughing or laughing. Incontinence can be a temporary problem, or last long-term.
