There are a number of reasons for developing a bladder problem, and in most cases it can easily be treated.
Complete this questionnaire to help determine whether or not you have a bladder problem, and, if so, what type of problem it may possibly be.
But you may have another problem affecting bladder control. That's why it's important to see your doctor who'll be able to diagnose you properly. In the meantime, have a look at the Bladder and Bowel Foundation website, which contains lots of useful information on common bladder problems and complaints.
You may want to print out this questionnaire with your results and discuss the contents with your doctor.
Overactive bladder means that you feel an intense urge to pass urine when your bladder contracts and squeezes it out. This happens even if your bladder isn't full and you shouldn't really need the toilet. Sometimes this can lead to urge incontinence if you can't make it to the toilet in time.
Stress urinary incontinence means that the bladder leaks a small amount of urine when it's put under pressure, e.g. from laughing, coughing, sneezing, exercising or having sex.
