Apr 13, 2019

What is the body structure that causes urinary incontinence?

Urinary incontinence occurs when the pelvic floor muscles at the bottom of our pelvis are weakened. If the pelvic floor muscles are in a healthy state, when the abdomen is forced, the pelvic floor muscle tissue will reflexively close the urethra to prevent urinary incontinence. It can be said that urinary incontinence is a sign of pelvic floor muscle relaxation.


What are the common types of urinary incontinence in women?

When coughing and sneezing, when running down the steps, even if there is no urine, urinary incontinence that occurs when the abdomen is forced is called "abdominal pressure incontinence." This is the most common type of urinary incontinence among women, except for the elderly. There is also a representative type of female urinary incontinence, which is an "impressive urinary incontinence" that is especially important as it ages. When you feel the urine, even if you rush to the toilet, it will not be too late to cause the wet pants to belong to the latter.


What are the habits that make urinary incontinence worse?

Healthy urination is after going to the toilet after feeling "want to go to the toilet", then the bladder contracts, the urethra is loosened, and urination begins. However, under the following circumstances, it is easy to cause urinary incontinence or make urinary incontinence worse:

· When urinating, exert a strong force on the abdomen, and the abdominal muscles forcefully discharge the urine;

· No urine, but frequently ran the toilet;

· After the end of the urination, it is necessary to confirm the presence or absence of urine residue.

· People who are prone to constipation are suffocating in the toilet every day.

When urinating, it is especially important to relax the pelvic floor so that the urine can be drained smoothly.
