Urinary incontinence

Urinary incontinence is a real problem for many people, we do not talk about and we dare not even approach a doctor ...
The urine is produced by the kidneys, it travels through the ureters and then reaches the bladder, which is the reservoir in the small pelvis; under the bladder there is a sphincter: it is a circular muscle that closes the bladder; when the bladder is full, it is stimulated and the urge to urinate is felt, it is the will that opens the sphincter and drain urine through the urethra and finally to the outside.

Sometimes, the sphincter does not work well and the urine may leak involuntarily, spontaneously, or during an effort such as coughing or sneezing: these symptoms reflect urinary incontinence. The reasons for the latter vary according to the sex and age of the person. Urinary incontinence can occur at any age (but especially when you are old), it is not incurable but can prove to be very troublesome everyday, dare to speak to your doctor.

There are three main types of urinary incontinence:
> Stress urinary incontinence occurring during physical exertion, coughing, sneezing;
Urinary urinary incontinence, which corresponds to an urgent need to urinate, which can not be retained (it is also referred to as urinary incontinence or overactive bladder); > Mixed urinary incontinence combining both types of incontinence.
