Get to know your condition

Millions of people experience involuntarily loss of urine. Yet, many people don’t know much about it. That’s a shame, because understanding the causes of – and types of – incontinence makes it easier to handle the condition and keep on living life to the fullest. 
For example, if you know that you’re dealing with stress incontinence, you have a lot to gain by doing “quickness clenches” on a regular basis. And if you’re living with urge incontinence, you can practice the bladder's ability to hold urine. That means increasing the amount of urine the bladder can hold and, step-by-step,  lengthening the amount of time between voiding at intervals (delay urination).
