There are several types of urinary leakage:

  • Loss of urine without felling of urinary urgency, just with cough, lifting or exercise. It occurs in both in women and men: in women as a results of dropped bladder and weakening of pelvic floor muscles after childbearing activity, in men – complication after prostate surgery.
  • Accidents happen because of urinary urgency that is hard to control and inability to reach bathroom on time. It could result from bladder disease, painful bladder syndrome, pelvic radiation for cancer or could be associated with a spectrum of neurologic diseases.

The treatment of urinary incontinence

 is based primarily on correct diagnosis of the type of incontinence.
