Urinary incontinence is a condition that leads to the loss of bladder control. It is a common condition, but nevertheless, it is usually considered an embarrassing issue. The symptoms vary from regularly leaking urine when you sneeze, cough, or laugh, to having a sudden strong urge to pee that you don’t have the time to get to the nearby toilet.
Though it is associated with older people, urinary incontinence is not a condition for the senior citizens in society only. Every person that is affected by urinary incontinence in one way or another is advised to visit a medical practitioner. Medical treatments and simple life changes can either stop or ease the symptoms of urinary incontinence.
A Note About Behavioral Techniques
At first, most people try out at-home techniques in order to get their situation under control. For example, double voiding is a technique where after urinating, you try again after a few minutes to clear the bladder. You may have also tried to avoid caffeine and alcohol. But if it’s still a problem, professional treatment is necessary.
