Women: Why We Struggle with Incontinence

March 25, 2012

Quite often sneezing, laughing or coughing will put pressure on the bladder resulting in urine leaking; this is referred to as stress incontinence. This is generally the result of pregnancy or childbirth, and/or menopause. As the most common form of incontinence, it is often treatable. When treatments fail, however, there are steps that can be taken to minimize the problem with urine leakage. Wearever offers a variety of incontinence panties to help you avoid embarrassing situation that might occur when stress-caused incontinence flares up.

This form of incontinence occurs in the first place due to childbirth and related events that injure the pelvic floor muscles and ligaments: the scaffolding that supports the bladder. This weakening of the inner support system causes the bladder to drop toward the vagina, preventing the muscles that normally keep the urethra shut from closing as tightly enough. Therefore urine escapes when additional physical stress is exerted.

Urge Incontinence

If you feel the need to urinate right before experiencing a leak, likely you are experiencing urge incontinence. This occurs when the bladder spasms, and it spasms because it is receiving abnormal nerve signals.

Urge incontinence can occur during the night, or even after hearing the sound of running water. Drinking or touching water might even trigger the urge. This condition can be intensified by certain medications, diuretics and strong emotions such as anxiety. Untreated diabetes, hyperthyroidism and other conditions increase the incidence of urge incontinence.

Depending upon the severity of these incidents, once again you may want to control the consequences of urge incontinence by using products offered by Wearever. There is a sense of security during these embarrassing occurrences that incontinence underwear like our Incontinence Panties, can provide. Many are turning to the new washable incontinence underwear available through Wearever.

Overactive Bladder

The last disorder occurs when malfunctioning nerves signal the bladder to contract without warning and generally at the most inconvenient time. Though healthy women may need to urinate up to seven times a day, those with overactive bladder may have to do so much more often. Overactive bladder is generally the diagnosis when a woman urinates more than eight times a day and more frequently than once at night; when the urge to urinate comes on suddenly with overpowering urgency; urine leakage following a powerful urge to urinate; and frequently waking at night to urinate.

In the end, one of the best ways to avoid the consequences of any of these incontinence issues is to keep yourself protected with Wearever Incontinence Panties from Wearever.
