Urine Leakage

Conditions like pregnancy, vaginal delivery, aging, and obesity are high-risk factors of urinary leakage. The term urinary incontinence is given in situations when voluntary control of urine is affected. When an individual is unable to hold urine immediately after the thought to urinate, urine leakage before reaching the toilet, leakage during coughing or sneezing, and leakage after incomplete emptying of bladder despite the feeling of satisfied urination, it is diagnosed as urinary incontinence. This can be mentally distressing and necessitates the use of napkins while going outside. Bladder training and pelvic floor muscle strengthening exercises are found to be beneficial.
