What is Incontinence?



Incontinence is more common that what is commonly perceived. Approximately 1 in 3 women , and 1 in 10 men are affected by incontinence in Australia.


Main types of incontinence

  • Stress: Bladder leakage when you exercise, cough, sneeze or laugh. This is often due to weakened pelvic floor muscles.
  • Urge: Frequent (4-8 times a day) and sudden urge to urinate without much notice. Leakage occurs if you can’t get to the toilet in time.


Main causes of incontinence

  • Childbirth: is a common cause of bladder weakness. In fact, 46% of women affected by incontinence are under 50.
  • Additional causes of incontinence include:
    • Menopause
    • Diabetes
    • Obesity
  • In men specifically, Prostate Cancer is a common cause.


Main treatment of incontinence

  • Diet and Exercise: As weight is a common cause of incontinence, it is important to maintain a health diet and exercise regularly.
  • Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water to avoid concentrating your urine. Avoid irritants like caffeine, artificial sweeteners and alcohol.
  • Kegels: Strengthening your pelvic floor muscles is beneficial for those with a weak bladder. Up to 70% of people with stress incontinence notice improvements after regularly practicing Kegels.
