Urinary incontinence is a loss of control of the bladder. It can be a reaction to a physical activity, a sudden urge, or dribbling after urination, and may be caused by aging, damage, or a condition.
If you're a woman with severe urinary incontinence, your doctor may recommend the vaginal sling procedure. Learn more about this surgery.
Bowel incontinence, also called fecal incontinence, is a loss of bowel control that results in involuntary fecal elimination. Severity can range from an infrequent involuntary passage of small amounts of stool to a total loss of bowel control.
