In this post, we will discuss bladder incontinence and how it is caused.

Parents or guardians of children who experience bedwetting at night or during the day should treat this problem with special understanding and patience. Bladder incontinence orĀ  Urine incontinence occurs when a person loses voluntary control over the muscles that hold urine in their bladder. These muscles are known as sphincter muscles. The muscle opens and closes to enable and restrict the flow of urine. When you lose control of these muscles, you lose control of your urine flow, and as we know…accidents can and will happen.

TO SAVE YOU TIME…and work from cleaning wet sheets,
If you already know the cause of your child’s bed wetting and your child is 7 years old or older, we’ve found that bedwetting alarms provide the safest and most immediate solution for people with incontinence. Here are some of the parent recommended alarms available…

After you get the immediate problem of bed wetting under control, you can research more about more about incontinence medicines and medical procedures.

Although it affects many young people, it usually disappears naturally over time, which suggests that incontinence, for some people, can be a normal part of growing up. Incontinence in the normal age of toilet training may cause great distress. Day or night incontinence can be embarrassing. It is important to understand that many children experience occasional incontinence and the treatments for most children who have difficulty controlling their bladders are available.

Urinary system function:

Urination is a difficult act. The bladder is like a balloon part lies in the lowest part of the stomach. The urine is first stored in the bladder and is then carried into the urethra. From which, the canal releases the urine to the outside of the body. Control the activity of nerves, muscles, spinal cord and brain is involved.
The bladder muscle is composed of two types: detrusor, a muscular sac that stores urine and squeezes to empty and the sphincter muscle which lies below the urinary bladder. This automatically stays contracted to hold the neck of a circular group and automatically releases urine in the urethra to relax detrusor when it contracts. Muscles below the bladder (pelvic floor muscles) contract to a third group can back urine.
A child’s bladder fills to a set point, then automatically contracts and empty. As the child gets older, nervous system gets mature. Whenever the bladder fills, child’s mind begins to receive messages. To keep it from automatically emptying until the child decides it’s time and place to void, the bladder begins to send the message.

Incontinence is often found in the following age groups of children:
5-year-olds – 10 percent,
10-year-olds- 5 percent,
18 years old – experience incontinence episodes about 1 percent of the time as compared with other age groups of children .

It’s twice as common in girls as boys.
Control system failures result in incontinence. The failure ranges from simple to complex.

The truth is, no matter what age or gender your child is, you never know when and who will experience urinary incontinence problems. The same holds true for adults who experience bladder problems and especially pregnant women with incontinence.

Therefore, try to remain calm about the problem, realize that it is not your fault, and seek practical solutions to curing the problem.

Since bed wetting is one of the consistent problems of incontinence, we recommend considering a bed wetting alarm to prevent further bed wetting.

As always, contact your physician if you suspect you might have bladder incontinence.
