What Are the Symptoms of Urge Incontinence?
Urge incontinence causes an urgent, uncontrollable need to urinate several times day and night, and you also may leak urine before you get to the restroom. Some people pee more than 8 times a day and several times during the night, and the cause may be an overactive bladder.
According to the Cleveland Clinic, there are different types of urinary incontinence. All of them cause you to leak urine uncontrollably.
- Stress incontinence causes urine to leak because of pressure on the bladder from coughing, laughing, or physical activity.
- Mixed incontinence occurs when you have both urge and stress incontinence. More than half of women with urge incontinence also have stress incontinence.
- Overflow incontinence causes you to leak urine because your bladder is too full or you can’t completely empty it.
It may seem as if this is only happening to you but you are NOT alone. This is very common in both women and men, and while pelvic floor exercises and other therapies like nerve stimulation can help, reusable leakproof underwear can provide peace of mind; and the best news is they are covered by Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and Flexible Spending accounts (FSA).
