During hay fever season (Springtime) you might notice that your urinary incontinence symptoms become less management due to the onset of sneezing. Hay fever is unpleasant enough without the added embarrassment that can come with bladder weakness.
Does hay fever cause bladder weakness?
In short, the answer is no, but hay fever may elevate your symptoms. If you leak when you sneeze and this happens frequently, you may have some form of Stress Urinary Incontinence. This type of incontinence occurs when you experience a loss of bladder control when you cough, laugh, sneeze, lift something heavy, or anything other activity that places stress on the bladder. It’s caused by a weakening of the pelvic floor muscles which are responsible for bladder control (among many other things). Stress Incontinence is very common, in fact, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 10 men suffer daily.
Causes of Incontinence can include things like pregnancy & birth, which weaken the pelvic floor muscles due to pressure or trauma, menopause, high impact exercise, ageing, and in men, prostatectomy surgeries.
The great news is that despite how common incontinence, bladder weakness, little accidents, whatever you might call it is, it is actually fixable. You don’t have to put up with leaks, you can do something about it.
