Take control of incontinence

Incontinence, or leaking urine, is an inconvenient yet common problem in both men and women. There are many types of incontinence, and many different factors that can cause it. The good news is that in many cases, effective treatment is available to help people better manage the problem and maintain a busy, active lifestyle.

Our Houston incontinence center, the Center for Voiding Dysfunction and Incontinence, offers the most advanced testing available to accurately diagnose the cause of both male incontinence and female incontinence. We use urodynamics, a highly sensitive testing method that identifies whether the sensory and motor functions of the bladder and sphincter are normal, and for men, can detect whether prostate issues are playing a role.

Types of incontinence

Based on test results, we can pinpoint the exact cause of urinary incontinence or leaking urine, so that we can design an effective treatment plan for each patient. There are several types of incontinence, all of which come with different symptoms.

  • Urge incontinence, in which you feel a sudden urge to urinate that is so strong, it often results in involuntary urine leakage.
  • Functional incontinence, in which the bladder and sphincter are functioning normally, but other physical or mental conditions prevent you from getting to the bathroom in time.
  • Stress incontinence, in which you experience bladder leaks when you cough, sneeze, laugh or otherwise place stress or pressure on the abdomen.
  • Reflex incontinence, in which leaking urine happens without first feeling an urge to urinate.
  • Overflow incontinence, in which your bladder becomes overdistended due to an obstruction or loss of its ability to contract, which can cause leaking urine.
  • Mixed incontinence, in which several types of incontinence come into play at the same time.
