Urge incontinence can be caused by the physical changes of aging and reduced estrogen production during menopause, which makes this condition more common in older women.

Women around the age of menopause also fear incontinence; many notice loss of slight amounts of urine during physical stress, such as running, laughing, or coughing.

  • This is also a huge problem for male lifters. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve shit myself during a heavy set of squats. Something about the asshole dilating provokes explosive bowel movements. After a few incidents involving myself and others in the gym I have begun to prescribe specialised butt plugs to solve the problem. I’m sure we can create something similar to plug females, who also have urinary difficulties.

  • Very interesting. And while i am a man. I recently had an injury. A tear in my groin. And because IT didnt go away after three weeks i went to a physiotherapist. She at somepoint asked me how i breath while doing the lifts. So i said i use the valsava, or in other words, hold my breath. Well she was shocked and said this could cause a lot of porblems like incontence, problems with genitals even hemorrhoids or hip fracture. I was like, no that cannot be like this is the normal breath method in training. But IT get you thinking. And while i look on internet about these kind of effexts i see little about it…exept for the female lifters peeing themselfs. Welly physio said check the older powerlifters how many of them have hemmaroids. Thats a scary question… i would like to see a good reply on this.

  • Thanks so much for this information! My wife and daughter are interested in starting their NLP, so I will share this video with them in case they find they have this issue.

  • Kegel exercises would seem to help this, and improve “other areas” of her life, couples’s lives.

    Also there is a “vacuum” pose Arnold used to do, and when you do it everything tightens down there even for men, you are supposed to vacuum your gut so as to ry and bring your bellybutton to your spine, and then brace (tighten) your abdomen, specially the lower abdomen, and keep the pose for 9-10 seconds WHILE BREATHING, he says you have to learn to breathe in this pose, and I found it helps with this tightening of the pelvic base or “floor”. You can do this anywhere, even while sitting or laying down, or walking in the park or shopping. but I insist, we men don’t mind this at all and it is sexy as hell if you REFOCUS the issue. Please.

  • Thank you for sharing this important information and stressing that urinary incontinence is not a normal part of aging, but that is a very common condition and not something older women should be embarrassed to ask their doctor about. To understand more about the causes, as well as the treatment options, I found this article helpful: https://www.ngcare.com/archives/your-incontinence-questions-answered/

  • Older women may need Rx vaginal estrogen cream. It helps strengthen the genito-urinary tract aka bladder capacity, and reduce bladder prolapse (cystocele).

  • I am glad to know this is a thing. I could only imagine exposing a female to resistance training and then be both freak out because of a random incontinence issue. Knowing that it is a common helps to calm their fears/embarassment along with me controlling my own reaction. Having material to direct them to should be most helpful.
