Urinary incontinence (or poor bladder control) is a common condition which affects over 4.8 million Australians. Incontinence is commonly associated with pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and a number of chronic conditions including asthma, diabetes and arthritis.
Incontinence can vary in severity, from the occasional leak when laughing, coughing or exercising, to a complete lack of bladder control which can cause a person to wet themselves. People who experience incontinence may suffer from a constant urge to visit the toilet due to a fear of leaks or ‘accidents’.
The condition is commonly under-reported, and there are a number of medicines that can assist with bladder control, so it is important that you speak to your doctor if you experience bladder leakage.
While there are a number of causes of urinary incontinence, the good news is it can be treated – and in many cases, cured.
