What is urinary incontinence?

We all know the feeling of holding our urine a little bit too long, whether it’s to avoid stops during a long car ride, not miss a minute of a suspenseful movie in a theater or simply because there’s nowhere to use the bathroom. 

In fact, 50 percent of adult women experience urinary incontinence at some point in their lives. If you’re experiencing the urgent sensation to urinate frequently or have been unable to hold your urine even for short amounts of time, there may be an underlying reason.

But what is Urinary Incontinence?

Urinary incontinence is defined as the loss of bladder control. The severity of urinary incontinence ranges from leaking a little bit when you sneeze or cough to feeling the sudden need to urinate and experiencing an involuntary loss of urine.

What are the Causes of Urinary Incontinence?

Urinary incontinence can be temporary or persistent and caused by a number of different conditions. The root of temporary urinary incontinence is usually lifestyle habits or an underlying medical condition that is easily treatable.

 Once you address the root cause of temporary urinary incontinence, it usually goes away. Temporary causes of urinary incontinence include:

  • Consuming food, drinks or medications that are diuretics, such as alcohol, caffeine, artificial sweeteners, blood pressure medication, muscle relaxants and large doses of vitamin C.
  • Urinary tract infections, which can irritate your bladder and cause the frequent and urgent need to urinate.
  • Constipation, which can cause the nerves in your bladder to become overactive.
