Urethral incontinence is a condition in which the patient is unable to fully control their bladder. Though it can happen to anyone it is mostly observed in adult women. The leaking urine may vary from just a few drops to a complete draining of the bladder.
Other symptoms include frequent needs to use the toilet both during day and night (at least 3-4 times during the night).
More than one-third of the population suffers from this common syndrome, though not everyone is ready to share their condition with others. Such people often isolate themselves, lose self-confidence, and often feel depressed. The good news is that depending on the syndrome progression, urethral incontinence can be effectively treated. In some cases, specific exercises and physiotherapy are enough to ease the symptoms. What's more, modern non-invasive therapeutic methods are capable of helping over 90% of the patients.
Mothers usually suffer from urethral incontinence because their pelvis muscles have lost their power and tonus. When the body is younger it has other coping mechanisms that prevent the urinal leaking. In male subjects, the most common cause is benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).
Urethral incontinence might follow insults or other neurological conditions, multiple sclerosis, and natural aging processes within the human body. Other causes may include congenital malformations, risk factors such as obesity and overweight, diabetes, and certain medicaments.
