Urinary incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine and it is a common issue that affects millions of women and men worldwide. Women are affected more commonly than men and most people find the condition embarrassing so they don’t talk to their doctor about it. However, incontinence is a treatable symptom, so you shouldn’t ignore it or think that you have to live with it for the rest of your life.

The different types of incontinence in women

There are different types of urinary incontinence in women, such as stress incontinence, urge incontinence, overactive bladder etc. Stress incontinence is the most common type that women experience and refers to a leakage when there is too much pressure on the bladder due to activities such as coughing, sneezing, running or jumping. It is caused by weak pelvic floor muscles and it is more common amongst women who have given birth multiple times, obese women or older women.

A lot of women begin to experience incontinence after having given birth multiple times and it generally becomes worse with age, as the pelvic floor muscles weaken naturally.

Pelvic floor rehabilitation is very efficient to treat incontinence

In most cases, physiotherapy cures incontinence in only few sessions. Contrary to common beliefs, you should know that:

  • Surgery is rarely necessary, only in some very extreme cases. Always do your pelvic floor rehabilitation before surgery.
  • It is never too late to seek treatment, so even if you have lived with incontinence for a long time, you can still be treated with physiotherapy and see outstanding results.
  • Incontinence should not taboo or a curse for women, and women today should no longer have to suffer from it when there are simple, natural and efficient solutions
