Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Urinary discharge is unnoticed and is not preceded by a urge to urinate before, in medical terms called urinary incontinence and can occur due to various causes, including urinary nerve disorders, urinary muscle weakness (especially if you have a history of using a catheter tube), being overweight , old age, the presence of bladder stones, and damage to the structure of the urinary tract.
Furthermore, urinary incontinence can be divided into several types, namely urge incontinence, stress incontinence, overflow incontinence and total incontinence. Each has different causes and treatments. Our advice, check yourself with a urologist to do a history and physical examination and further support, including possible cystoscopy or examination by inserting a small tube containing a camera into the urinary hole, urine analysis, x-rays and so forth. The handling you will receive later depends on the results of this inspection. Able to exercise bladder, Kegel exercises, injecting certain substances, taking drugs, to various operating procedures.
Meanwhile, reduce drinking water, avoid consuming caffeine such as coffee and tea which can trigger urination, avoid cold air, and if necessary, wear diapers for a while. So, hopefully answering your question.
