I have been told I may be experiencing mixed incontinence. What exactly is this? Has anyone had this before?
Mixed incontinence is the combination of both stress incontinence and urge incontinence. This condition causes urine leaks when pressure is put on the bladder as well as sudden urges to urinate. It is treatable in most cases, so do not be worried.
Have you considered any treatment methods for this?
The popular treatment methods for treating urge incontinence are behavioural treatment, sacral nerve stimulation, medication and pelvic floor exercises. You can read all about these on our blog.
Have you visited your Doctor about this? It would useful for you to know the cause of your mixed incontinence.
I haven’t actually been to the doctors yet so i’m not that clued up about the situation. I’ve come to realise I’ve had light incontinence since been younger and having children. Things just never got totally back to normal in that department. I’ve allays just sort of dealt with it until i started getting urges with little warning and now its getting difficult to manage. What is sacral nerve stimulation?
