When a patient suffers from incontinence, he or she is really suffering from two things; the negative impact that their physical condition is having on their lives, and the frustration and embarrassment they feel from an emotional standpoint. Our youth obsessed popular culture has done an excellent job of stigmatizing and mocking the condition of incontinence to the point that people with the condition don’t want to talk about it — at all.
What causes urinary incontinence?
Urinary incontinence has a wide range of potential causes including various medical conditions, certain medications and constipation. Bladder leakage can also be triggered by issues that are unique to either males or females such as removal of the prostate or pregnancy. It’s always best to seek advice from a doctor or health professional to help you understand more about what is causing the problem.
