Learn About Types of Incontinence & Bladder Leakage | NAFC

Learn about the different types of incontinence, their causes, and how to treat them.

With more than 25 million Americans affected by either bladder control or bowel control issues, the medical community has taken note. And because incontinence is a symptom rather than a disease, the method of treatment depends on diagnostic results.

Most treatment involves a combination of medicine, behavioral modification, pelvic muscle exercises, collection devices, and absorbent products. Despite the high success rates in treating incontinence, only 1 out of every 12 people affected seeks help. Don’t be like those other 11 people.

Prepare yourself by getting more knowledgeable. Below are categories of incontinence. See which one best describes what you are experiencing. Read up so when you talk with a medical professional, you’ll be ready to actively participate in your treatment.
