Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is the unintentional passing of urine.

There are several types of urinary incontinence

  • Stress incontinence – when urine leaks out at times when your bladder is under pressure; for example, when you cough or laugh, sneeze, do heavy lifting or exercise
  • Urge incontinence – when urine leaks as you feel a sudden, intense urge to pass urine, or soon afterwards
  • Overflow incontinence (chronic urinary retention) – when you’re unable to fully empty your bladder, which causes frequent leaking It’s also possible to have a mixture of both stress and urge urinary incontinence.

Urinary incontinence is a common problem but many people are embarrassed to talk about it.

Urinary incontinence can usually be diagnosed after a consultation with your urologist, who will ask about your symptoms and may carry out a pelvic examination (in women) or rectal examination (in men).

You may also be suggested you keep a diary in which you note how much fluid you drink and how often you have to urinate.
