Urinary incontinence is involuntary leakage of urine without your knowledge or without your control when you cough, sneeze, or the urine comes out before you reach the toilet. In males most of the urinary incontinence may be due to or it may be a result of the prostatic surgery and the initial ways to control the urinary incontinence in males could be medication, certain exercises but in case the urinary incontinence still persists to a problematic degree in the male, one has to resort to an artificial urinary sphincter implantation.
In females, the may be due to several reasons, for example, multiple childbirths, pelvic surgery. It is called stress incontinence if there is a leak with cough or sneeze and urge incontinence if there is leak associated with the sudden uncontrollable desire to urinate. This is usually due to overactive bladder.
A variety of operations are available for the treatment of severe incontinence which does not respond to medication or exercise.
