Incontinence can take several forms including:
- stress incontinence due to weakened pelvic and urethral muscles
- urge incontinence which results from an overactive detrusor muscle
- overflow incontinence which occurs when the bladder is obstructed, preventing urine to completely pass out
- total incontinence which can be caused by issues from birth or spinal injuries.
Certain health issues can make your chances of developing incontinence higher including vaginal births weakening the pelvic floor, family history of it, obesity and increased age.
Treatments such as Vesicare can support you in getting control of your incontinence by relaxing the bladder’s muscles, reducing leaks and the urge to take regular trips to the bathroom.
