Urinary incontinence, or loss of bladder control, commonly affects women as they age, but is sometimes a sign of an underlying health condition. Persistent incontinence is often the result of changes to your pelvis and vagina that occur during pregnancy, after childbirth, or with age.
A vaginal delivery can weaken your muscles and tissue that support your bladder. Additionally, as you age, your bladder muscle may decrease its capacity to store urine. During menopause, your body produces less estrogen – the hormone that helps keep your bladder lining and urethra healthy. With less estrogen, these areas can deteriorate and lead to incontinence problems.
Also, if you’ve had a hysterectomy, the removal of your uterus may damage the supporting muscles in your pelvic floor, leading to less support for your bladder. As a result, you may experience chronic episodes of urinary incontinence.
The most common types of incontinence among women include:
A small amount of urine leaks out when you laugh, cough, sneeze, or exert pressure. It’s very common among women, and may make you stop exercising or participating in activities to avoid embarrassment.
This is the next most common form of incontinence in which you feel a sudden urge to empty your bladder, followed by involuntary urine loss. This type sometimes causes you to urinate more frequently, even during the night.
You experience a frequent, trickling loss of urine as a result of your bladder not emptying completely when you use the restroom.
