Why am I Losing Bladder Control?

November 13, 2018

Your kidneys are constantly producing urine. Thin tubes called ureters carry urine from the kidneys to the bladder, where it is stored. The bladder should stay relaxed while it is filling and the urethra (the tube that expels urine from the bladder) should remain tight. When the decision is made to urinate, the urethra relaxes, the bladder squeezes, and urine flows out.

This is a complex process. The ability to control urination can be disrupted in different ways, resulting in incontinence. Urinary incontinence can occur at any age.

What are the signs and symptoms of urinary incontinence?

The symptoms of urinary incontinence include:

  • Urine leakage after a sudden, uncontrollable urge
  • Urine leakage after coughing, laughing, or sneezing
  • Urine loss without any apparent reason

Urine loss may be a few drops or a large amount.

Waking up frequently at night to urinate, bedwetting or needing to urinate very often during the day also can be signals of a bladder control problem.

If you experience urinary incontinence, there is no need to pay high prices for incontinence supplies.
