Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is any time urine comes out (leaks) when you don’t want it to, something that happens to many women. There are different types of urinary incontinence, and treatment options can depend on the type of incontinence you have.

Fecal Incontinence

Fecal incontinence, also called “accidental bowel leakage,” is when you accidentally pass solid or liquid stool or mucus from your rectum. This can happen when you feel the urge to go and cannot get to a bathroom in time, or you might pass stool in your underwear without knowing. Fecal incontinence can be embarrassing and wearing pads may not hide the problem because of the odor. The good news is that there are treatments.

Overactive Bladder

Overactive bladder is any combination of the following problems: Urinary urgency, an uncomfortably pressing need to get to the toilet. Urinary frequency, or having to urinate more often than you think you should.

Painful Bladder Syndrome

Painful bladder syndrome (PBS) is a condition that causes bladder pain, pressure, or discomfort. Some people feel the need to urinate frequently or rush to get to the bathroom. The symptoms range from mild to severe, and can happen sometimes or all the time.

Pelvic Organ Prolapse (POP)

Pelvic organ prolapse (POP) is a common problem. Women with POP may notice a bulge coming from the vagina when they wash or wipe, or just going about daily activities. It usually isn’t painful, but can be very uncomfortable and can cause a feeling of pressure.

Urinary Tract Infections

Although the urinary system is designed to keep bacteria that cause infection out, the body’s defenses sometimes fail. UTIs typically occur when bacteria get into the bladder through the urethra. When that happens, bacteria can multiply and develop into an infection in the urinary tract. UTIs, also called “bladder infections” or “cystitis,” are different from vaginal infections.
