Men can have several types of bladder control problems.

  • Urinary incontinence (UI) is the accidental leakage of urine. Urine can leak in three ways:

          o when you cough, sneeze, or lift—actions that put pressure on the bladder

          o following a sudden, strong urge to urinate

          o as a constant dribbling; men with this problem usually need to urinate often   and only pass small amounts of urine each time.

  • Overactive bladder is a condition in which the bladder squeezes urine out at the wrong time. You may have overactive bladder if you have two or more of these symptoms:

          o urination eight or more times a day or two or more times at night

          o the sudden, strong need to urinate immediately

          o urine leakage that follows a sudden, strong urge to urinate
