Urinary incontinence

If muscles that hold bladder in place (Pubococcygeus muscle) or muscles that hold bladder closed (sphincters) do not function properly, it is possible that those muscles can not hold pressure on bladder, like coughing, sneezing or laughing.

When sudden pressure is put on bladder, urine can “escape” through weakened muscles, and then we have urinary incontinence.

Problem of urinary incontinence presents loss of bladder control. Muscles and tissues are weakened due to age, pregnancy, vaginal delivery, obesity, diabetes, hormonal therapy, hysterescopy, physical activity, smoking, diet, other health issues or genetic influence.
