Urinary Incontinence (UI) is defined as the involuntary passing of urine. It is an extremely common medical condition, with some fifty million sufferers worldwide.

There are a variety of causes for urinary incontinence, but there are thought to be two main types of incontinence that are responsible for over 90% of cases. The two most common types of incontinence are known as stress incontinence and urge incontinence.
Stress incontinence is the most common form of incontinence and is frequently caused as a result of the weakening of the pelvic floor muscles and/or the urethral sphincter. If these weaken, it is likely that urine will pass when the bladder becomes under pressure (or stress). This additional stress is caused by things such as sneezing, coughing or laughing.
Urge incontinence can be defined as the leaking of urine when a sudden desire to pass fluid is experienced. This is frequently caused by an overactive bladder. Overactive bladder syndrome causes the bladder to suddenly contract when the bladder is not full, and without you having any control.
Urinary incontinence can be a distressing and upsetting health condition. However, urinary incontinence can be much improved and treated through a variety of methods. There are several forms of natural urinary incontinence treatments that can significantly improve it:
Incontinence medication can be used in addition to these treatments, to improve and cure stress urinary incontinence. The medication is commonly used if incontinence does not significantly improve after the natural methods above have been used. Pills used to treat stress urinary incontinence works to increase the strength of the muscle tone of the pelvic floor and urethra. The prescription only medication, Vesicare, is used to treat overactive bladder and urge incontinence.
