What is Incontinence?

Incontinence, in the context of pregnancy, refers to the involuntary loss of urine, gas, or bowels. It's a prevalent issue that can impact women during and after pregnancy, affecting their daily lives and overall well-being.

Weakened Pelvic Floor Muscles:

 Pregnancy and childbirth can weaken the pelvic floor muscles, reducing their ability to adequately support the bladder and control urine flow.

Causes of Incontinence during Pregnancy: 

Incontinence during pregnancy can be attributed to various factors, including

Pressure on the Bladder:

As the uterus expands during pregnancy, it exerts pressure on the bladder, leading to increased urgency and frequency of urination. If the pressure exceeds the capacity of the pelvic floor, leaking may occur. 

Hormonal Changes:

Fluctuations in hormones, particularly the hormone relaxin, can affect the muscles supporting the bladder and contribute to incontinence.

Symptoms of Incontinence:

  • Urgency:

 Sudden and strong urges to urinate that may be difficult to control.

  •  Frequency: 

An increased need to urinate, often more frequently than usual.

  •  Leakage:

 Involuntary leakage of urine, especially during activities such as coughing, sneezing, or physical exertion.

  •  Nighttime Urination:

 Frequent waking during the night to urinate, disrupting sleep patterns.

  •  Pelvic Discomfort:

 A sensation of pelvic pressure or discomfort associated with the urgency to urinate.
