Urinary incontinence is a problem that many women experience from time to time. Urinary incontinence can occur in some movements and increased intra-abdominal pressure (such as coughing-laughing). Sometimes women can hear urine when they hear a running water or wash their hands. Some people feel urgent urination and cannot control it. Some even urinate only when they are pregnant. If urinary incontinence is frequent or severe enough to cause problems, it is called urinary incontinence. This condition can often be treated. Urinary incontinence is a common problem and we have many treatment options.
Urinary incontinence is more common in women than men. Most women experience mild urinary incontinence at some point in their lives. Severe abduction is less common and affects about one in ten women.
Urinary incontinence does not mean that a woman does not have frequent urine incontinence. However, an active woman or a woman who misses a large amount of urine at a time may be overloaded once a week. Women sometimes do not tell their doctors about urinary incontinence. More than half of women with complaints of urinary incontinence do not go to the doctor. The reason for this is that they do not see urinary incontinence as a problem, or they use an absorbent pet to cope with the problem or change their lifestyle. Others are ashamed, depressed or avoid social activities.
There is a false belief in some women that urinary incontinence is a normal part of aging. They think that nothing can be done to heal, but this can often be treated.
Tell your doctor if you have any urinary incontinence problems. Correct diagnosis and treatment may reduce your complaints.
Types of urinary incontinence
There are five types of urinary incontinence:
Stress type urinary incontinence: The most common type of stress in young women is urinary incontinence when the pressure in the bladder exceeds the pressure in the urethra. This causes a woman to urinate when she coughs, laughs, or sneezes. Abductions can occur when a woman walks, runs or does sports. The reason is the weakening of the tissues or urethra muscles that support the bladder.
Jamming urinary incontinence: The woman suddenly has a strong urge to urinate and urinates before she reaches the toilet. This is also called overactive bladder. Urinary incontinence occurs when the muscles in the bladder are more frequent and frequently contracted. It also occurs due to problems in nerve endings leading to signals in the bladder.
Mixed type urinary incontinence: If a woman has both stress and urgency incontinence, this is called a mixed type urinary incontinence. This combination causes more abductions than any type alone.
Overflow urinary incontinence: Occurs if the urine bag does not empty completely during urination. For this, urinary bladder muscles should not be fully involved or the urethra should be blocked. This results in a small amount of urinary incontinence.
Functional urinary incontinence: Other health problems lead to abduction when a woman prevents her from catching the toilet in time. Causes:
- Diseases of the nervous system
- Motion problems (eg walking difficulty)
Urinary incontinence is a common problem in women and we have many treatment options. However, it is important to seek professional help. Tell your doctor if you have complaints that affect your daily life. A full and detailed examination is required to find the cause of the problem. Urinary incontinence improves greatly in most cases with correct treatment.
