Things I Need To Know About Treatment For Women’s Health
Why does incontinence occur?
Incontinence can occur due to weakness of the spincter muscles responsible in closing the urethra. When this muscle is underactive and weak, pressure from laughing, coughing, exercising or sneezing can result in leakage of the urine. In addition the bladder muscle can suddenly tighten, this can cause urge incontinence with a urge to urinate that you may not be able to control.
What does Pre and Post Natal mean?
Prenatal is the medical term given to describe the pregnancy time of ‘previous to birth’ or ‘to giving birth’. Postnatal or postpartum is the term given for the time which begins immediately after childbirth.
