Do U Leak URINE while Cough or Sneezing

Urinary incontinence is a common medical problem and refers to the unintentional leakage of urine.

We called it stress incontinence, when urine leakage occurs while coughing or laughing. Urinary incontinence can make a person feel embarrassed. Nevertheless, it is important for people to seek professional help for this common condition.

Stress incontinence is the most common type of urinary incontinence, which occurs when the muscles that prevent urination are weakened by an action, such as a cough. The pelvic floor muscles are under the urethra. They support the bladder in keeping the urethra closed to stop its content from leaking out. By causing the pelvic floor muscles to relax momentarily, a cough can cause urine to leak through the urethra and out of the body.

Causes of stress incontinence:
It is possible for the pelvic floor muscles or the muscles surrounding the urethra to be damaged or weakened from the following.
• Pregnancy
• Giving birth
• Obesity
• certain medications

Several medications can reduce mild stress incontinence, including the antidepressant duloxetine, adrenergic stimulators or blockers, tricyclic antidepressants, and hormones.

If pelvic floor muscles are not being strengthened, surgery could be another option. Surgery will typically aim to tighten or support muscles below the bladder. Simple sling surgery can cure this problem. There are many myths to this surgery but patient consult to specialist Urologist, sling surgery can be done in safe hands. Only 15-minute surgery can change your life.
