Urinary Incontinence is any accidental or involuntary loss of urine from the bladder.


Incontinence is a more common than most people would like to acknowledge and ranges in severity from 'just a small leak' to complete loss of bladder. In a study done, it was found that around 40% of women in India between the ages 30 to 50 years suffered from this problem. As the issue is considered a social taboo, most people don't get help. People with  urinary incontinence are frequently depressed. They often curtail  all social activity and stay at home.

There are different types of urinary incontinence like stress urinary incontinence in which urine leakage occurs because of sudden pressure on lower stomach muscles during coughing, laughing, sneezing, weight-lifting or exercise. Urge urinary incontinence occurs when need to urinate comes on too fast usually seen in elderly.

Incontinence can be treated and managed.  In many cases it can also be cured. Bladder control training using 'Kegel Pelvic' floor muscle exercises, 'Biofeed back' and timed voiding technique gives good results in various types of urinary incontinence. Various new medicines are also available for effective treatment of stress urine incontinence.
