    Types Of Incontinence

    Incontinence can have many stages, from leakage of small volumes, to the inability to  pass urine or stools from the body. It's important to identify the category that you fall into.

    Types of incontinence include stress incontinence, or urine leaks when there is increased pressure on the bladder caused by excessive coughing, sneezing, laughing, running, jumping, and lifting heavy objects.

    Urge incontinence is the inability to control the bladder, such as going to the toilet too frequently when the bladder isn’t full or holding it in for a prolonged period.

    Mixed incontinence, meanwhile, is a mixture of both stress and urge continence.

    There is also incontinence due to prolapse. A bladder prolapse may cause  incontinence or difficulty in passing urine or motion fully. It usually occurs when there is weakness in the vaginal walls and cervix.
