- Pregnancy and childbirth-The stress of the pregnancy and the trauma of childbirth can damage and weaken the pelvic floor muscles which are crucial to maintaining both urinary and bowel control. Because of this incontinence can show up immediately or even years later.
- Menopause-The loss of estrogen and other hormonal changes that happen at menopause can bring on symptoms of incontinence.
- Prostate surgery
However, no matter the cause of the incontinence it is crucial that anyone (male or female) who is experiencing incontinence symptoms seek out medical treatment. There are many cases of incontinence that are the result of an untreated medical condition. This makes it very important that not only do you have the incontinence symptoms treated but the medical condition that is causing it, as well. Some of these medical conditions include but are not limited to:
- Neurological illnesses or injury
- Urinary tract infection
- Prostate problems or cancer
- Bladder blockage
- Obstructions in the urinary or bowel systems
- Medications currently being taken
- Physical therapy
- Behavioral therapy
