YOUR BLADDER – WHO’S IN CONTROL?
Maintain a good bladder function
Urinary incontinence affects millions of women. Of the more than 75 million women over the age of 40 nearly 25 million suffer from Urinary Incontinence from mild to severe with a high number of them being without a choice other than wearing adult diapers.
This issue usually begins with the occasional accident after a laugh or a sneeze and develops into a problem that simply will not go away and whether it is just the beginning or after years of managing the problem.
FEMAXEEN® can help you regain control of your bladder.
- BASICS OF BLADDER FUNCTION
• Most women begin to experience signs of bladder inconvenience in their 40s and 50s, after childbearing. This applies to vaginal, not caesarean births
• In some cases, however, discomfort can start earlier, particularly for those predisposed to urinary conditions.
There are three main types of urinary incontinence:
1. Stress incontinence
Stress incontinence occurs when weakened pelvic floor muscles cause you to leak urine when you cough, sneeze, jump, or laugh. Intensive physical exercise or sudden movements can also set it off.
2. Urge incontinence
Urge incontinence typically occurs in older women and is when you feel a sudden, uncontrollable urge to urinate. Also called ‘overactive bladder’, urge incontinence is caused by the bladder contracting when it shouldn’t, allowing urine to leak through the sphincter muscles. It can strike at any time or anywhere, even during sleep. For some, the mere sound or touch of running water can have you running to the nearest loo.
3. Mixed incontinence
Mixed incontinence as its name suggests, is a combination of both urge and stress incontinence.
