Urge incontinence, also known as urge incontinence or overactive bladder. The term overactive bladder also covers conditions with frequent compelling water. If you answer yes to two questions, you probably urge-incontinence:

  • Do you often accelerate your toilet?

  • When you're not out to the toilet?

The condition is often caused by frequent contractions of the bladder muscle that cause the bladder empties fully or partially outside control.

The mode can be caused by:

  • Blærebetændelse

  • Disease (especially neurological diseases, ie. Disorders of the brain or nerve paths)

  • Tumors (rare)

Usually there is no identifiable cause. It is a subject of research is a part in.
