About Incontinence

Urinary incontinence or the loss of bladder control can happen to anyone. The symptoms can range from involuntary leakage to uncontrollable loss of urine. Most of the time, it happens because muscles that keep your bladder closed are too weak or too active. Other causes include prostate problems and nerve damage.

About Incontinence

If your muscles weaken, you may have stress incontinence and have urine loss when you sneeze, laugh, or exert yourself. If your muscles are too active, you may have urge incontinence or overactive bladder, and feel the urge to go even with very little urine.
