Triggers for Urinary Incontinence during Menopause

Triggers for Urinary Incontinence during Menopause

Urinary incontinence is when you experience a loss of bladder control, and it can be an extremely unpleasant obstacle to face as you get older. It is especially troublesome amongst women going through menopause.

Causes of Urinary Incontinence:

Hormonal Imbalance

This is the most common cause of urinary incontinence among women, and often appears during menopause when estrogen and progesterone levels begin to fluctuate. This is because estrogen plays a big role in ensuring that the urinary tract stays healthy.

Weight Gain

Extra weight, especially around the tummy, can cause more pressure on the stomach and bladder, which can weaken the urethra over time. People who are generally at risk of this are people with a BMI of 30 or higher, as well as women who are pregnant since it also exerts more pressure on the urinary tract.

Infections or Growths

Urinary tract infections (UTIs) can often be the cause of incontinence, as growths within the urinary tract can cause discomfort and the constant feeling of having to urinate. It is important to see a doctor if you think you might have a UTI, as in some cases it can spread to the bladder and even the kidneys.

Certain Medications

Many prescribed and over-the-counter medication can have negative side effects, one of which might be loss of bladder control.

Some of the common medications with this side effect are antidepressants, diuretics, sedatives and certain hormone replacement treatments.
