Urinary incontinence, which is an inability to control release of urine, can be both a costly and embarrassing problem. Sometimes it can be caused by a temporary condition, such as a urinary tract infection, and other times urinary incontinence in women can be an ongoing issue caused by changes in muscles and nerves around the bladder.
Urinary incontinence is a common condition among women over the age of 35, and many patients feel it is an expected part of normal aging. This is not the case, and fortunately many treatment options are available for both types of urinary incontinence.
- Stress incontinence, causes loss of urine during physical activity, coughing, sneezing or laughing.
