What is Urinary Incontinence? 

Urinary incontinence or overactive bladder is a medical condition involving involuntary urine leakage – patients with bladder leakage have difficulty holding or controlling their urine, causing sudden urination. It can be as severe as being unable to hold urine until reaching the toilet or as mild or moderate as experiencing urine leakage when coughing or sneezing.

Overactive bladder is common among older people, but this shouldn't inevitably come with aging. This condition is usually caused by your lifestyle or an underlying medical condition, depending on the type you have.

If you experience symptoms of an overactive bladder, you may schedule an appointment to consult with our urinary incontinence specialist at Dermatology & Skin Health. Seek treatment to keep it from affecting your personal life and progressing to several complications like skin problems and urinary tract infections.

Symptoms of Urinary Incontinence

Patients experience loss of bladder control because of the problems with the pelvic floor muscle, sphincter muscle, and other muscles and nerves responsible for passing or controlling urine. Symptoms of urinary incontinence may vary from patient to patient – some cases may also be temporary, while some can be permanent. 

Here are some of the symptoms of urinary incontinence:

  • urinary leakage when applying pressure on the pelvic floor, like sneezing, laughing, exercising, or coughing
  • frequent urination
  • having abrupt and involuntary urges to urinate
  • urinating during your sleep
  • waking up at night many times to urinate

If you experience symptoms of bladder leakage, consult our medical professional at Dermatology & Skin Health. Our experts will offer patients the most suitable treatment option depending on their medical history and condition.

Types of Urinary Incontinence

Loss of bladder control can be temporary or permanent. Determining the right type of condition can help you arrive at a better treatment plan.

The types of urinary incontinence are:

  • Stress incontinence - the type of bladder leakage where urine leaks when you apply pressure on your bladder. The activities involved include sneezing, coughing, lifting heavy objects, exercising, or laughing.
  • Overflow incontinence - urinary leakage with a feeling of frequent dribbling of urine because of an overflowed bladder that cannot be emptied.
  • Urge incontinence - involves waking up in the middle of the night multiple times to urinate. Patients with urgency incontinence feel forceful and sudden urges to urinate where the bladder muscle contracts involuntarily, allowing urine to leak through your urethral sphincter muscle. This is caused by urinary tract infection or other chronic conditions, like diabetes.
  • Mixed incontinence - a type of urinary incontinence where patients have mixed types of overactive bladder. Those with mixed incontinence usually have urgency urinary incontinence and stress incontinence.
  • Functional incontinence - a type of urinary incontinence where patients pass urine before making it to the toilet. Functional incontinence may also include a mental or physical impairment that keeps patients from reaching the toilet, like dementia, severe arthritis, and other conditions.

If you've experienced urinary leakage, schedule a consultation with our urinary incontinence doctor at Dermatology & Skin Health. We will assess your condition and create an integrated treatment plan suitable for you.

When Should I See a Doctor?

Be it permanent or temporary incontinence, consulting with a urinary incontinence specialist to receive the best treatment option will help you improve your quality of life and avoid further complications.

Treatment for Urinary Incontinence

Dermatology & Skin Health has highly-trained healthcare professionals that offer high-quality assessment and treatment for patients experiencing loss of bladder control.

Diagnosis

Treatment for urinary stress incontinence, urge incontinence, and other types of loss of bladder control start with a series of consultations to dig deeper into your symptoms and confirm your diagnosis. During your screening, expect to be interviewed about your symptoms, behavioral health, and medical records. Our medical professional will also consider the risk factors, like gender – female urinary incontinence is more common than male incontinence. 

We might recommend you prepare the following:

  • Urinalysis - to check for urinary tract infection and other inflammation, blood, and other possible risks.
  • Bladder diary - keeping a bladder diary, logging all the times you drank water and urinated, will make the consultations more productive.
  • Postvoid residual measurement - expect your medical professional to conduct this test where they examine the amount of urine left in your bladder with a catheter or an ultrasound test after you urinate.

Treatment

Treatments for urinary incontinence may range from taking medications or doing bladder training to undergoing surgery. Our doctors may recommend any of the following:

  • Medications - some medications can relax bladder muscles, while some can resolve tissues in your urethra
  • Behavioral techniques  - routines for controlling the bladder
  • Pelvic floor muscles exercises - strengthens the muscles at the pelvic floor
  • Electrical stimulation - mild electric currents from electrodes can stimulate and strengthen the pelvic floor muscles.
  • Interventional therapies - different nonsurgical procedures, like as Botox, can be part of your treatment plan
  • Surgery - your urinary incontinence specialist may also recommend surgery as a treatment option if other solutions didn't work.
