Urinary incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine. Women are more likely to develop it than men due to pregnancy, childbirth, and menopause. This is a common problem and is known to cause distress and have a large impact on the quality of life. The underlying medical condition is the major cause of urinal incontinence. Various types of urinal incontinence are urge incontinence, stress incontinence, overflow incontinence, functional incontinence. Most common type of incontinence women suffers from is stress and urge incontinence. Estrogen production decreases after menopause and in some women, the tissues of urethra become weak and thin. Stress incontinence is caused by the loss of urethra support which is caused by the damage to the pelvic support system structure after childbirth. Small activities which involve pressure like sneezing, coughing and lifting can cause the leakage of urine too. Surgery can be helpful in treating stress incontinence. The most common surgical technique used to treat stress incontinence includes a sling, tension free vaginal tapes, and bladder suspension. Bladder symptoms affect children, men, and women of all ages. But older women are most likely to suffer from it due to the weakening of pelvic floor muscle after childbirth. Gynecologist must be consulted to find the most effective method of treatment. In some cases, medicines and kegel exercise can alone treat the symptom and surgery is not required and therefore these should be tried before the urinary incontinence surgery treatment.
