Causes of urinary incontinence

Urge incontinence is usually the result of overactivity of the detrusor muscle, which controls the bladder. Certain things can increase the chances of urinary incontinence developing, including: pregnancy and vaginal birth obesity a family history of incontinence increasing age – although incontinence is not an inevitable part of ageing
