URINARY INCONTINENCE

There are several types of urinary incontinence, but in general incontinence refers to the

leakage of urine at inappropriate times.

Stress incontinence   is leakage of small amounts of urine when there is increased pressure on the bladder. This can happen with exercise or with sneezing, coughing, lifting or other activities.

 

Urge incontinence is the leakage of medium to large amounts of urine when a person feels a sudden strong urge to urinate.

 

Mixed Incontinence includes symptoms of both stress and urge incontinence.

 

Functional Incontinence is urine leakage that occurs when a person can not get to the toilet in time.
