What causes weak bladder

See also

Have you ever wondered what causes weak bladder control? In this article I list the causes for weak bladder control. This is actually a continuation of my article 'Are bladder control commercials lying to you?'. While both articles can be read individually, I recommend you check it out as well to get a complete understanding.

Causes for weak bladder control are:

  • Frequent sex irritates and bruises the urethra which is the external opening into the urinary tract. Over the years the urinary sphincters become weaker.
  • Lack of urinary control and frequency can be a sign of a bladder infection.
  • Bladder infections more often comes from external bacteria which is introduced when you rush into sexual activity with dirty hands. It looks steamy in a sexy movie but it can leave you with an expensive bladder infection. Once you have a bacterial infection you must get an antibiotic.
  • Having babies puts stress on the bladder, urethra and pelvic muscles upon vaginal deliveries. Also there are ligaments that hold up the bladder and with frequent or hard pregnancies will weaken the external sphincter that controls the release of urine from the bladder.
  • When your blood sugar is too high you will feel thirsty and have to pee a lot, it could be a precursor to diabetes. Do not ignore this sign it may lead to bed wetting.
  • The urethral sling is an option. It is surgically placed around the urethra to lift it back into a normal position to help urine retention. It is attached to the inside of the abdominal wall. It is made out of a muscle, tendon or ligament grafted from your own body, from an animal source or synthetically. Note that there are attorneys out there searching for victims who want to make claims against this product.
