Are You Sick & Tired With…
- Constant urge, burining & painful discomfort in urinating?
- Miserable from having many sleepless nights?
- Frequently going to bathroom with bladder feeling like balloon about to explode?
Frequent Urination In Men
An average person is expected to empty the bladder 8 times in a day and once at night. However, some people are unable to control their bladder making them empty it more than 8 times. In good health, the number of times you empty your bladder is directly proportional to the amount of fluids you take. This is not true in bladder incontinence.
Urinary incontinence is reduced control over the sphincter muscles that control urine release. Its severity can range from mild to severe. In the most severe cases, the person is surprised to feel wet in their pants due to leakage.
For some people, leakage is triggered by a simple cough or sneeze. Others when they feel like peeing, they have to do it quickly or else! However, most people experience its effects at night that is they wet their beds.
Urinary Incontinence: Statistics
- Women are affected more because of their physiology and the fact that they don’t have a prostate gland which helps in urine control.
- Studies done in the UK, Germany, France and Spain in 2005 showed that 32%, 34%, 32% and 15% of women respectively had signs of urinary incontinence.
- Bladder control symptoms are seen more in women after giving birth.
- W.H.O estimates that about 200 million people have the condition worldwide.
- N.H.S estimates that 3-6 million people in Britain have some degree of incontinence.
As you can see, if you have the condition, you are not alone in the world. In fact, the statistics could be worse because people are afraid of admitting that they have the problem. What’s more?! W.H.O says that most of the cases can be helped if not completely eliminated.
Types of Bladder Incontinence
- Stress Incontinence is the most common and is usually seen in females after birth or menopause. It is triggered by stress such as coughing, sex and sneezing. Basically anything that put pressure on the bladder triggers this type of incontinence.
- Overactive Bladder Syndrome: It refers to involuntary tightening of bladder muscle to cause an urgent need to pee. Despite the urgent need to pee, only a few drops of urine are released.
- Mixed incontinence results from a number of factors. It is a combination of the above two type of incontinence.
- Overflow Incontinence occurs when the bladder overflows or is not able handle its capacity. People with this type of bladder incontinence always think that their bladder is full and the need to pee. It can also be caused by damaged nerves connecting the brain and bladder muscles.
- Functional Incontinence is caused by factors other than the bladder. This organ is found to have no functional problems. Chronic diseases are the major culprits here.
- Reflex incontinence happens when a person who had normal control loses this ability all-over-sudden. It is also called unconscious incontinence and is a side-effect of spinal injury or surgery.
- Dual incontinence refers to both bladder and faecal incontinence. It is almost exclusively experienced by women.
Causes of Lack of Bladder Control
Just like the types of incontinence, the causes are as many. In fact, it is often takes time to identify the exact cause. Only an expert doctor can conclusively determine the exact cause.
- Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) cause irritations thus the constant need to pee. After the UTI is treated with antibiotics, it usually clears in no time.
- Interstitial cystitis is inflammation of the bladder. Though its symptoms are similar to UTI, it is not caused by bacteria. Its cause is idiopathic (unknown).
- Pregnancy piles pressure on the bladder thus the need to empty it.
- Nerve damage: urinating is a complex process controlled by nerves coming from the brain. Nerve damage causes poor communication between the brain and bladder thus incontinence.
- Surgery can damage the bladder’s internal plumbing and nerves leading to the poor bladder control.
- Mental stress.
- Other diseases such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis and Parkinson’s diseases.
- Accidents that affect the spinal cord can lead to poor bladder control.

Control Your Bladder: Tips
The first and most obvious tip here is to reduce you fluid intake. Reduced water intake will decrease the rate at which urine is produced. Remember, only a small amount of water taken by the body is absorbed. The rest is release as urine and to a lesser extent as sweat.
Cut down on alcohol and other drinks that contain caffeine
Apart from the reducing fluid intake, these drinks also have a diuretic effect. This means that the above drinks reduce bladder control. Ideally, you should not take any drinks before bedtime. Caffeine is the culprit in these drinks.
These exercises are especially useful if the cause of your incontinence is a weak bladder. These exercises are aimed at strengthening the muscles of the pelvic floor and sphincter muscles thus better health. They basically involve holding urine even when you really feel like peeing. With time muscles at this region become stronger.
