General Incontinence / Urinary Incontinence Information
Urinary incontinence is the involuntary release of urine. Incontinence is not a condition in itself, but rather a symptom of a problem with the lower urinary tract. The body stores urine (water and wastes removed by the kidneys) in the bladder, a balloon-like organ. The bladder connects to the urethra, the tube through which urine leaves the body. During urination, muscles in the wall of the bladder contract, forcing urine out of the bladder and into the urethra. At the same time, sphincter muscles surrounding the urethra relax, letting urine pass out of the body. Incontinence will occur if the bladder muscles suddenly contract or muscles surrounding the urethra suddenly relax.

Most Common Types of Urinary Incontinence
Urinary Stress Incontinence Stress incontinence occurs when coughing, laughing, sneezing, or other movements that put pressure on the bladder result in urine leakage. Pelvic floor muscles support the bladder. If these muscles weaken, the bladder can move downward, pushing slightly out of the bottom of the pelvis. This prevents muscles that ordinarily force the urethra shut from squeezing as tightly as they should. As a result, urine can leak into the urethra during moments of physical stress. Stress incontinence also occurs if the muscles that do the squeezing weaken.
Urinary Urge Incontinence People who lose urine for no apparent reason while suddenly feeling the need or urge to urinate suffer from urge incontinence. The most common cause of urge incontinence is inappropriate bladder contractions. Medical professionals describe such a bladder as "unstable," "spastic" or "overactive." Some doctors may call this condition "reflex incontinence" if it results from overactive nerves controlling the bladder. Urge incontinence can mean that the bladder empties during sleep, after drinking a small amount of water or when a sufferer touches water or hears it running (as when washing dishes or hearing someone else taking a shower).Causes of urinary stress incontinence include physical changes resulting from pregnancy, childbirth and menopause. It is the most common form of incontinence in women and is treatable. Stress incontinence can worsen during the week before the menstrual period in women. At that time, lowered estrogen levels might lead to lower muscular pressure around the urethra, increasing chances of leakage. The incidence of stress incontinence increases following menopause.

Possible Causes of Incontinence / Urinary Incontinence
Causes of urinary urge incontinence include involuntary actions of bladder muscles that occur because of damage to the nerves of the bladder, nervous system (spinal cord and brain) or the muscles themselves. Multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, stroke and injury can harm bladder nerves or muscles.

Possible Symptoms of Incontinence / Urinary Incontinence
The main symptom of incontinence is difficulty controlling urination. The symptom of urinary stress incontinence is the inability to control urine flow when laughing, sneezing or coughing. The main symptom of urge incontinence is a sudden, uncontrollable need to urinate. Women experience incontinence twice as often as men.

Possible Lifestyle Changes for Incontinence / Urinary Incontinence
Kegel exercises are effective in strengthening or retrain pelvic floor muscles and sphincter muscles, which can reduce or cure stress leakage. Drink plenty of water. Avoid alcoholic beverages, caffeine, soda pop and simple sugars. Do not smoke. Achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Do not put off emptying the bladder when the urge is evident. Try to empty the bladder every three to four hours.
