inside incontinence

Post by pam

There are different levels of incontinence from stress, urge, prostate, mixed, night time, overflow and bowels.

Stress incontinence
Stress incontinence is when urine leaks because of sudden pressure on your lower stomach muscles, such as when you cough, laugh, lift something or exercise. Stress incontinence usually occurs when the pelvic muscles are weakened, for example by childbirth or surgery. Stress incontinence is common in women.

Urge incontinence
This occurs when the need to urinate comes on very suddenly, often before you can get to a toilet. Your body may only give you a warning of a few seconds to minutes before you urinate. Urge incontinence is most common in the elderly and may be a sign of a urinary tract infection or an overactive bladder.

Overflow incontinence
This type of incontinence is the uncontrollable leakage of small amounts of urine. It's caused by an overfilled bladder. You may feel like you can't empty your bladder all the way and you may strain when urinating. This often occurs in men and can be caused by something blocking the urinary flow, such as an enlarged prostate gland or tumor. Diabetes or certain medicines may also cause the problem.


Functional incontinence
This type occurs when you have normal urine control but have trouble getting to the bathroom in time. You may not be able to get to the bathroom because of arthritis or other diseases that make it hard to move around.

Mixed incontinence
This type involves more than one of the types of incontinence listed above.


The different types of bowel incontinence include nerve damage to the pelvic floor due to childbirth, birth defects or surgery; inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn's Disease and Ulcerative Colitis; Irritable Bowel Disease; food allergies; health conditions such as multiple sclerosis or other neurological disease; and medications, especially laxatives
