Incontinence of urine can have a very profound affect on your daily life. It can cause you to become homebound and constrained. It can cause depression and be very embarrassing. Patients often do their best by adapting to their situation by restricting fluid intake, planning their day according to the availability of a nearby bathroom, and having to carry pads or diapers with them. Patients dealing with incontinence will also be dealing with a very high cost of diapers and appliances.
Urinary incontinence can be classified into two separate categories according to its cause. The first is known as the overactive bladder or OAB and the second is known as stress urinary incontinence.
