Urinary incontinence is the involuntary or uncontrollable leakage of urine. It is a common and distressing problem. It may have a profound effect on the quality of life.
The indications include:
• Occasional loss of bladder control from mild (a few drops) to moderate (wet underwear) to severe (wet outerwear).
• Incidents of uncontrolled urination when coughing, sneezing, laughing, bending, lifting, and/or doing any physical activity that strains your bladder.
• Urine loss when changing from a sitting or lying position to a standing position.
• Frequent, sudden urges to use the restroom and an inability to get there in time.
• Waking in the middle of the night to use the bathroom.
• Continuous bladder leakage.
