The Truth About Bladder Leaks
Urinary incontinence affects many people for a variety of reasons, so why do we keep it hush-hush? Let’s talk about the truth about bladder leaks.
From persistent incontinence to the occasional leaking bladder, there are many reasons why you may trickle a little. Pregnancy, menopause, urinary tract infections, and even the foods and drinks we consume can lead to leaks. If you experience incontinence, you certainly are not alone. In fact, 1 in 4 people with “internal plumbing” have some form of urinary incontinence. Of them, only 45% discuss their incontinence with a medical provider. Let’s change that.
Types of incontinence include:
Stress incontinence - typically occurs when coughing, sneezing, laughing, or with exercise.
Urge incontinence - occurs when someone experiences a sudden urge to urinate and can’t hold it in.
Overflow incontinence - usually occurs when your bladder doesn’t empty completely, causing bladder leakage throughout the day.
Functional incontinence - Occurs when a physical or mental impairment prevents you from getting to the restroom in time.
Incontinence can be life-altering if it prevents you from doing activities you love. If you experience incontinence, you are not alone. If incontinence affects your quality of life, we recommend reaching out to a medical professional. Experts such as pelvic floor therapists have helped many people find relief!
