What is Urine Incontinence?
What is Urine Incontinence? Urinary incontinence is a condition in which urine goes out of control. The severity of this disease also varies, ranging from urine that seeps out when you cough or sneeze, to the urge to urinate very suddenly and so you do not get to go to the toilet.
Broadly speaking, urine incontinence is divided into six types, namely:
- Incontinence drive. This is one of the most frequent types of urinary incontinence, where in this condition the patient will experience a very intense urge to urinate until the patient is unable to hold it again.
- Stress incontinence. In this type, urine comes out when the bladder gets a sudden pressure (eg when laughing, sneezing, or coughing).
- Overflow incontinence. Also called chronic urine resistance, in which the bladder is not able to remove the urine perfectly every time urination. As a result, the bladder will be enlarged due to a pile of residual urine.
- Total incontinence. Urine often comes out uncontrolled due to the bladder that can not accommodate urine at all, so the urine will be directly streamed out.
- Functional incontinence. Urine is out of control due to a person suffering from a health problem (either physical or mental) so that he can not get to the restroom just in time.
- Mixed incontinence. This type is a mixture of more than one type of urinary incontinence above.
