Types of urinary incontinence 1) Stress Incontinence, which is the involuntary leakage of urine as a result of sneezing, coughing, walking, jumping, laughing or lifting heavy objects. It may be a result of the urethra is too mobile and not compressed against the vaginal wall during increased abdominal pressure. 2) Urge incontinence, which is involuntary loss of urine associated with a strong sensation to pass urine. This may be due to a number of causes such as infection, menopause and other bladder irritants such as smoking excessive caffeine and alcohol. 3) Mixed incontinence, which is a combination of urge and stress incontinence. 4) Overflow incontinence, which is involuntary loss of urine due to an overfull bladder caused by poor emptying.
Treatment May include Physiotherapy, bladder training, Electrical stimulation, medical treatment and surgical treatment in the form of midurthral sling, which is very effective in treating severe stress incontinence. Dr Nada will explain the options, limitations and the suitability of each treatment according to your specific problem.
