Urinary incontinence is the failure to hold your urine until you get to the toilet. More often women experiences incontinence two times more than men. This can be due to pregnancy and childbirth, menopause, and the structure of the female urinary tract. Although both men and women can become incontinent from strokes, multiple sclerosis, and other physical problems related with old age. But older women experience more incontinence than younger women. But incontinence is not inevitable with age. Incontinence is treatable and can be cured at all ages.
Female Urinary Incontinence normally occurs because of problems with muscles that help to hold or release urine. The body stores urine--water and wastes removed by the kidneys--in the bladder organ. The bladder is connected to the urethra, the tube through which the urine excretes the body. During this urination process, the muscles in the wall of the bladder contracts, forcing urine out of the bladder and into the urethra.
You need not be embarrassed by Incontinence. This is can be properly treated through exercises, Electrical Stimulation, Biofeedback, Timed Voiding or Bladder Training, Medications, Pessaries, Implants and as a last resort, if none of the other treatments work, your doctor can also suggest a surgery to alleviate incontinence. Many surgical options have given a high rate of success.
