Don’t Make Me Laugh, I’ll Pee My Pants…

We’ve heard this phrase more times than I can count. Unfortunately, too many men and women consider urinary incontinence a normal part of life. Let me be the first to tell you that no matter your age, urinary incontinence is NOT normal.

Urinary incontinence is a condition in which urine is involuntarily excreted due to a lack of control over the urinary sphincter (the two muscles that control the exit of urine).

Urinary Incontinence Signs & Symptoms:

  • Sudden urge to urinate that results in unintentional urination before reaching a restroom

  • Urine leakage when placing stress on the bladder such as when coughing, sneezing, laughing, or exercising

  • An inability to fully empty the bladder, which may result in constant dripping of urine

  • Sporadic leakages of large amounts of urine

The Different Types of Urinary Incontinence We Treat

Urinary Incontinence

Fecal Incontinence

Erectile Dysfunction


Stress incontinence is caused when one experiences a urine leak due to pressure on the bladder. For example, stress incontinence can occur when exercising, lifting heavy objects, laughing, coughing, or sneezing. This is the most common type of bladder control problem in younger to middle-aged women, and it may occur around the time of menopause.

Urge incontinence is caused when there is a sudden and emergent need to urinate. Someone experiencing urge incontinence may not have enough time to make it to the toilet before leakage occurs. This type of bladder control problems is usually a result of diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, or stroke.

Overflow incontinence is caused by a bladder that is always full, thus causing leakage to occur. For example, if a man has an enlarged prostate that is blocking his urethra, it can be difficult to empty the bladder. Other conditions, such as diabetes and spinal cord injuries, can also cause this type of bladder control problem.

Functional incontinence is caused when people have a condition that makes it hard to move to the bathroom quickly enough before leakage occurs. People with functional incontinence actually have normal bladder control; however, they have an alternative condition (such as arthritis) that makes it difficult to move and thus results in leakage if they cannot make it to the toilet in time.

What Causes Urinary Incontinence & the Different Kinds of Incontinence?

There are various reasons why individuals may experience urinary incontinence despite their efforts to control it. In some cases, short-term urinary incontinence may arise due to temporary conditions like urinary tract infections, vaginal infections, or constipation and may resolve independently. Certain medications can also cause temporary bladder control problems that typically improve after discontinuation. However, if urinary incontinence persists, it may indicate an underlying condition such as:

  • Weak bladder muscles

  • Overactive bladder muscles

  • Damaged bladder nerves resulting from diseases like diabetes, multiple sclerosis, or Parkinson's

  • Enlarged prostate causing blockage

  • Difficulty reaching the bathroom on time due to conditions like arthritis

  • Pelvic organ prolapse

  • Prostatitis

  • Benign prostate hyperplasia

  • Damaged pelvic floor nerves due to injury or surgery
