Types of urinary incontinence
Incontinence symptoms may range from a few drops of very rare to constant escape of urine, and it will always be regarded as a sign of disease.
Stress incontinence. The most common cause of incontinence is lower pelvic muscle weakening or menopause. This form of incontinence is often seen in women given birth. Abdominal and total bladder pressure becomes higher than the pressure in urinary channels, although the bladder muscle is not weakened. Urine escapes uncontrollably and spontaneous during coughing or sneezing – during the rapid increase of intra-abdominal pressure.
Urge incontinence / Overactive bladder. This type of incontinence manifest itself as a sudden and compelling need to empty the bladder, with no possibility of control. The desire to urinate does not depend on the amount of urine in the bladder.
Mixed urinary incontinence. When the stress and urge incontinence are combined.
Overflow incontinence, and drip. If the reason of urinary incontinence is overflow bladder, urine passes from the bladder due to weakened detrusor (sphincter) which can not hold urine. Enlarged prostate can often be the reason of the problem for men.
Neurogenic urinary incontinence. It is caused by disrupted synchronous neural activity between the brain and spinal cord, and bladder.
Fecal / bowel incontinence – a spontaneous or uncontrollable fecal excretion. The reasons can vary: damage of the lower part of the pelvis or astringent; disorder after several surgical operations; or severe constipation.
