Incontinence is a disorder of conscious control over urine and faeces. Although, some degrees of incontinence are temporary, in majority cases are their effects dependent upon the current state of health of the individual. Incontinence occurs twice as often in women than in men, which is related to factors such as women in pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, cystitis, sedentary jobs and others.
Both sexes may be threatened by the unconscious neurological disorder after trauma, congenital defects, after a stroke or physical problems associated with ageing. The beggining phase of incontinence is not always affected only by the age. In women the incontinence issues occur in majority cases due to the problems with muscles helping to retain or release urine. Problems with urinary incontinence occur when the bladder muscles start moving suddenly or muscles surrounding the urethra are suddenly released.
People with incontinence often feel embarrassed, cease to live actively and are not willing to talk about their problem. They isolate from their social environment, friends and family, and due to their inner feelings are trying to hide this problem as long as possible. Often, women are not willing to talk about their problems even in case of light form of incontinence, until they decide to visit a specialist.
