What is Urinary Incontinence?
During the day, most people need to urinate about every three to four hours. Just how long you can comfortably hold your pee differs for everyone. If you aren’t staying hydrated, or if you’re losing fluids through perspiration, you may be able to hold in your urine for quite some time.
At night, most people under age 50 are able to hold urine for about eight hours. As you get older, though, you may find yourself getting up to make two to four bathroom trips. But, sometimes, your bladder may start overreacting, despite of your young age and gender, and you may urge to pee often. Sometimes, waiting to go is unavoidable and that’s okay. But, if you’re feeling pain or discomfort, you get an overwhelming urge to cross your legs to keep from peeing, or feel intense pain in the lower back or abdomen – there is something serious; which is called as Urinary incontinence.
High incidences are seen in women as compared to males. There are different types of incontinence like stress incontinence, urge incontinence, overflow incontinence, functional incontinence and mixed incontinence.
