What is the cause of problems with urination?

Before starting treatment or tryingsomehow to solve the given problem, it is necessary to find out precisely the reason on which it has arisen. What is the algorithm for working a healthy bladder? Urine fills a healthy bladder until it overflows. When this happens, special receptors located in the wall of the bladder send a signal to the brain. As a result, we feel some pressure in the lower abdomen. After urination has occurred, the bladder is shortened, and the nerves responsible for contracting the muscles and sphincter, the musculature of its walls, help it. If at least one of these components is not able to cope with its task, problems with urination begin to arise. As a result of a decreased tone of the sphincter of the bladder, involuntary discharge of urine during coughing, heavy lifting, laughing, etc. may occur. Here it is already possible to talk about urinary incontinence. Very often this is observed in women in menopause. This is due to the change in the hormonal background of a woman. simple exercises for the muscles of the bladder

Urinary incontinence: the main causes of pathology

In the absence of any pathology, urine can notcome out spontaneously, because the muscles of the bladder overlap the urethra. Nevertheless, in the case of muscle relaxation, a permanent and spontaneous discharge of urine can occur, otherwise incontinence. If men have incontinence due to prostate adenoma, women have a problem for other reasons. Statistics show that in women, a weak bladder occurs three times more often than in the male half. First of all, this is due to the fact that during the pregnancy and during childbirth the muscles of the pelvis and perineum are significantly weakened and stretched. As a result, the internal organs, descending, begin to press on the bladder. In the climacteric period, problems are added even more. Against the backdrop of hormonal rearrangements, the muscular sphincter is significantly weakened and is no longer able to block the bladder. Sharp and frequent urge to urinate often occurs without filling the bladder. Such a problem can appear in inflammatory diseases of the bladder, for example, with cystitis. Sometimes urinary incontinence is also observed at times when the bladder is irritated. This can be the result of worries and fears. It is not easy to distinguish an excited bladder from a cystitis, it requires the help of a doctor. You should know that an excited bladder can be the result of chronic cystitis or another inflammatory disease of the genitourinary system. Men face the problem of a weak bladder much less often and, as a rule, such a pathology occurs in them as a result of an increase in the prostate gland. In 60% of men over the age of 50 years there are benign tumors, which are prostate adenoma. The prostate gland is enlarged, thereby compressing the bladder and impeding the flow of urine. If men have frequent urge to urinate, then, most likely, he had this pathology. It is already necessary to treat a patient with the prostate.
