These are typical symptoms of stress incontinence.
You’ll probably understand your symptoms better if you learn how your bladder works and how the different organs and muscle groups work together. In short, stress incontinence happens when your urethral sphincter is too weak to stay closed. Your urethral sphincter is a muscle that prevents urine from accidentally escaping your bladder. If it doesn’t stay closed, urine can leak from the bladder. Sudden exertions such as sneezing, jumping or laughing add pressure to the bladder and if your sphincter muscle is too weak to keep closed, you’ll experience leakages. Typically, men experience stress incontinence due sphincter or nerve trauma related to prostatic surgery.
Stress incontinence can be bothersome and unpredictable, but by wearing protective products such as Contend during the day, you can feel comfortable and protected without worrying about potential leakages. Remember that it’s important to consult your doctor if you are experiencing symptoms of stress incontinence to get properly diagnosed.
