Urinary incontinence is a multifactorial condition, mostly affecting women. It doesn’t happen by chance, there is always an explanation and reason. It can be due to menopause, that has a large impact in women’s body. It can be due to post partum, another life event that impact the feminine body, to help care for the baby. And it can be a surgery collateral result. But it is not due to any surgery. Know the most relevant.
Surgery is one of the reasons for urinary incontinence
What type of surgery can lead to urinary incontinence?
Pelvic surgeries and correction of genital prolapse – because of an organ displacement – are recorrent causes of urinary incontinence. They include physiologic changes in the body, impacting its functioning.
For similar reasons, there is a (very common) surgery that increases the ocorrence of urinary incontinence. It is c-section delivery. This may lead to displacement of the bladder, the organ that stores urine. As opposite to urinary incontinence caused by delivery – effort urinary incontinence – in c-section delivery it can be an urgency urinary incontinence. In this case, it is a sudden urge to urinate.
Hysterectomy, which consists of removing the uterus, can also lead to involuntary urine leaks, as it often leads to anatomical changes in the bladder and urethra.
Although it is a frequent collateral damage, urinary incontinence does not have to be permanent. Don’t give up because urinary incontinence has a solution. You just need to find it. We can help: natural supplements enriched with vitamin D, soy extracts, pumpkin seeds and selenium can be great allies.
Postpartum is one of the reasons for urinary incontinence
One of the common postpartum consequences is the occurrence of involuntary urine leakage, with effort urinary incontinence being the most frequent. It happens as a result of movements that imply strength – such as laughing, coughing, sneezing or bending down to pick up an object.
Menopause is one of the reasons for urinary incontinence
It shows up without a scheduled date, between 40 and 58 years old, and its symptoms can be more or less subtle. Beside the well known sudden hot flashes or the end of menstruation, the reduction in ovarian activity caused by the end of estrogen production has more manifestations in the woman’s body. Urinary incontinence is one of them.
