Urinary Incontinence Treatment

Urinary incontinence is the involuntary leakage of urine, meaning a person urinates when he/she is not aware of. Control over the urinary sphincter, a muscle that locks up the urinary bladder is either lost or weakened. The severity can range from an occasional leakage of urine when you cough or sneeze to a strong overflow. It is a much more common problem than most of us realize and is more common among women than in men.

The main symptom is the unintentional release of urine. When and how this happens depends on the type of urinary incontinence.
