Types of Urinary Incontinence

 - Stress Incontinence - The urethral sphincter is weakened so that transient increases in intra abdominal pressure raise the bladder pressure to levels that exceed urethral resistance.

 - Urge Incontinence - Detrusor contractions are stronger than normal and overcome the normal urethral resistance. The bladder is typically small.

 - Overflow Incontinence - Detrusor contractions are insufficient to overcome urethral resistance. The bladder is typically large, even after an effort to void.

 - Functional Incontinence - This is a functional inability to get to the toilet in time because of impaired health or environmental conditions. - Incontinence Secondary to Medications  -  - Drugs may contribute to any type of incontinence listed.
