Types incontinence

A normally functioning bladder fills up with urine slowly. When you feel the need to urinate, you go to the toilet. The sphincter relaxes and the bladder wall contracts to force urine out of the bladder. When people suffer from incontinence the bladder does not function optimally. This can have a number of causes: the bladder itself, the pelvic floor, or there may be a problem with the nerves that carry messages from the bladder to the brain to let it know when the bladder is full or empty.
Incontinence can be categorised in a number of types including stress incontinence, urge incontinence, overflow incontinence and neurogenic incontinence.

Stress incontinence

Stress incontinence means you lose urine without meaning to during physical activity, for example when laughing, running or sneezing.

Urge incontinence

Another form of incontinence is urge incontinence. Urge incontinence occurs when you have a sudden urge to urinate.

Overflow incontinence

Overflow incontinence is when the bladder is full constantly and frequent leakage of small amounts of urine occurs as a result.

neurogenic incontinence

Finally, neurogenic incontinence is caused by damage to nerves in the body or the central nervous system.
Nowadays there are various products available to help with incontinence. The following is a list of medicines which can be ordered through Dokteronline.com to treat incontinence.
