|Health differences: African American Women|
versus Caucasian Women
With urge incontinence you have the sudden and often uncontrollable urge to urinate. The bladder is considered overactive and this is why it is causing you to need to urinate frequently. The bladders muscles will suddenly contract and this is what causes you to have the urge to urinate. The other problem, with urge incontinence is that when you do try to rush to the restroom, it places strain and pressure on the bladder and this can end up causing you to have more urine loss or to have the urine loss faster. Pregnant women commonly experience problems with urge incontinence as the bladder already has additional pressure placed on it from the growing uterus.
