We all know the dreadful feeling of sneezing or coughing suddenly while having coffee with friends or while out shopping, and how humiliating and embarrassing it is to be caught short and leak urine. Imagine the awful feeling with an overwhelming urge to empty your bladder and not making it to the bathroom on time. Worse still is the fear of faecal incontinence.
Clinically significant urinary incontinence (also involuntary urination or enuresis) is a common and distressing symptom of a variety of conditions. Failure to store urine or leakage of urine is most common in geriatric patients but can affect all ages. In addition, patients with urinary incontinence are more likely to have faecal incontinence, termed double incontinence. Difficulty with urination control results in higher rates of depression and limited activity levels. Therefore, incontinence can have a profound impact on quality of life.
Many men experience a variety of problems with their urinary system leading to unwanted leakage of urine. Some also have difficulty controlling wind or leakage from the lower bowel, often due to weakness of the muscles of the pelvic floor which have an important function in preventing these problems.
