Is There Any Information about Bladder Leakage?

Q:
Can you give me some information about bladder leakage?

A:
Many people experience occasional, minor leaks of urine. Others may lose small to moderate amounts of urine more frequently.

Types of urinary incontinence include:

  • Stress incontinence
    Urine leaks when you exert pressure on your bladder by coughing, sneezing, laughing, exercising or lifting something heavy.
  • Urge incontinence
    You have a sudden, intense urge to urinate followed by an involuntary loss of urine.
  • Overflow incontinence
    You experience frequent or constant dribbling of urine due to a bladder that doesn’t empty completely.
  • Functional incontinence
    A physical or mental impairment keeps you from making it to the toilet in time.
  • Mixed incontinence
    You experience more than one type of urinary incontinence.
