Stress incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine when coughing, sneezing, laughing, running or jumping. Drops of urine or even just the sensation of insecurity are signs that you should take action.
The cause of incontinence is mostly a weak pelvic floor and/or organ prolapse
Urge incontinence is a sudden, intense urge to urinate followed by an involuntary bladder emptying which is sometimes difficult to control. The cause is mostly an overactive bladder muscle (Detrusor).
An irritable bladder signals a sudden strong urge to urinate, which can be controlled but with only a small amount of urine.
Mixed incontinence is common.
