Urinary incontinence

Incontinence is involuntary urine loss, or 'not being able to hold your pee back'. You are not the only one. 3 out of 4 women experience unwanted urine loss to a greater or lesser extent. Along with other bladder-related problems, it is more common than all conditions such as asthma, diabetes and epilepsy combined. A large proportion of all men also suffer from incontinence.

Types of incontinence

There are different types of urinary incontinence. The four most common are:

  • Stress incontinence
    Stress incontinence (stress incontinence) is most common in women. Stress incontinence is involuntary leakage of urine during laughing, sneezing and coughing. The causative agent of urine leakage is usually a loosening of the sphincter muscle of the bladder and insufficient support of the urethra.
  • Urge incontinence
    With urge incontinence, you cannot suppress the urge to urinate. You have to urinate very often and leakage of urine occurs. You may also wake up frequently at night with an annoying urge to urinate.
  • Mixed incontinence
    Mixed incontinence involves both symptoms of stress and urge incontinence.
  • Overflow incontinence
    In overflow incontinence, the bladder is not completely emptied. Causes include an overactive pelvic floor, malfunctioning nerves, a blockage in the urethra that stops the outflow of urine or a flaccid urinary bladder.
