Urinary Leakage

Urinary leakage occurs when small amounts of urine unintentionally escape the bladder. Occasional leakage can be perfectly normal, even in healthy adults, but if it becomes a regular occurrence, it can prove frustrating or even impair your lifestyle. Most importantly, recurring urinary leakage may be a symptom of a more serious underlying condition.

What can cause Urinary Leakage?

Urinary leakage can be caused by many of the factors that can lead to related bladder control problems, especially incontinence. The most common causes of urinary leakage tend to be related to the condition of the muscles and glands surrounding the bladder (for example, related to pregnancy and childbirth)

How can Urinary Leakage be treated?

Most treatments for urinary leakage are similar for incontinence and include behavioral therapies, medications and non-invasive surgery.
