Urinary incontinence is a widespread condition that affects millions of people. It’s also a very personal issue, so it can be hard to talk about. But if you’re experiencing urinary incontinence, you’re not alone: Urinary incontinence affects nearly one in five women and even more men.
How does it happen? When we’re born, we have an organ called the bladder that stores urine until we pee it out. People have a muscle called the urethra between their bladder and their vagina or penis that helps them control when they release their urine. For those with urinary incontinence, this muscle doesn’t work as it should. Sometimes too much urine gets released, and sometimes not enough.
Most cases of urinary incontinence are caused by medical conditions, which include diabetes or problems with the pelvic floor muscles that support your organs. Some cases are caused by medication, like side effects or surgical complications. In some cases, urinary incontinence is linked to childbirth or aging—and in others, it has no known cause at all.
