The most common types of male incontinence
There are a number of different types of incontinence, but the ones that are most common for men are urge incontinence and dribbles (also known as post-micturition dribble and terminal dribble). It's not uncommon to be dealing with a combination of the two. Other types of incontinence are overflow urinary incontinence (an involuntary leakage while having a full bladder often caused by enlarged prostate problems) and stress incontinence. The best way to establish which type you are dealing with is to consult a doctor. They can then help you find the right treatment and rule out if the urine leakage is a side-effect caused by other issues.
Urge urinary incontinence
Urge incontinence refers to involuntary leakage with an intense feeling of needing to pass urine. There are a number of things that can cause urge incontinence in men. One of the main causes is when the detrusor muscles, which are the voluntary muscles in the sphincter, are overactive and cause involuntary contractions. This sends nerve messages to the brain, giving you the sensation that you need to pass urine when you don't want to. For some men, it could be because of a bladder irritation from an infection, or kidney stones. It could also develop as a complication of a nerve or brain-related illness (a stroke, Parkinson's disease or multiple sclerosis).
