Urination Leakage

Urination leakage is a common and embarrassing condition that affects many men and women. In fact, almost two-thirds of women have experienced leakage at some point in their lives. It tends to get worse with age.

One study found that 75% of women aged 65 and older report some type of urinary leakage. This condition affects a woman’s quality of life and her self-esteem. Yet, only 45 percent of women with this condition speak about their problem with their healthcare providers. In addition, some women find it embarrassing to discuss their symptoms. Others think that urinary leakage is a normal part of aging or childbirth.

Men, too, often have this problem in later years, often due to surgery or prostate issues.

Urination leakage is a problem where urine cannot be held in the bladder and spills out. This can be caused by a number of reasons, including an obstruction that prevents urine from draining and a problem with the bladder’s muscle. Sometimes, the problem can be so severe that the patient can’t urinate properly.

There are several treatments for involuntary urinary leakage. Lifestyle changes and home remedies can help patients reduce their symptoms and minimize their discomfort. Drying skin naturally is a great first step toward preventing bladder infections. Avoid excessive washing as this can lead to a breakdown of the protective barrier that protects the urinary tract. In addition, applying protective creams to the skin can help prevent infections.
