Types of Urinary Incontinence

Other Types of Urinary Incontinence

Stress and urge incontinence often occur together in women. Combinations of incontinence are sometimes referred to as "mixed incontinence."
 
Transient incontinence is a temporary form of the condition. It can be triggered by:
 
  • Medications
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Mental impairment
  • Restricted mobility
  • Stool impaction (severe constipation), which can push against the urinary tract and obstruct outflow.
