Urge Incontinence


Your Result:

Urge Incontinence – or an overactive bladder can have many causes. An enlarged prostate, Parkinson’s disease, bladder infection, or simply age can all cause urge incontinence. Symptoms can be made worse by drinking too much caffeine or alcohol.  Treatment can include exercises, behavioral treatments, and medication. If you are experiencing the need to urinate often followed by leakage or frequent urination, you may want to start with some behavioral treatments. Try bladder training by scheduling your bathroom breaks and keeping to that schedule. Reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake and start to incorporate some pelvic floor exercises, (or Kegels) into your day. If you do not see improvement or your symptoms worsen, seek medical help.
See this article to find some additional behavioral methods.
