Symptoms & Causes

Symptoms of bladder leakage include occasional minor leaks of urine to moderate amounts of leakage.

Types of urinary incontinence include:

● Stress incontinence.
● Urge incontinence.
● Overflow incontinence.
● Mixed incontinence.

Stress Incontinence:

Is caused when physical movement or activity puts pressure on your bladder from coughing, sneezing, or laughing. When you exert extra effort on your bladder, it causes urine leaks.

Urge Incontinence:

When you feel a strong urge to urinate and experience an involuntary loss of urine. Urge incontinence can be caused by many things, including infection or diabetes. Some people may have no warning before an accidental leak.

Overflow Incontinence:

Overflow incontinence is when you experience an involuntary release of urine, often because of weak bladder muscles or a blockage.

Mixed Incontinence:

When you experience more than one type of urinary incontinence — most often, this refers to a combination of stress and urge incontinence.
