Micturition or urination is a complex and multisystem involved process. Many alterations to this system are possible which a health-care worker may get encountered with during routine practice. Among them, urinary incontinence (UI) symptoms are highly prevalent among women, in which the patient is unable to hold urine voluntarily and can broadly classify it into stress UI, urge UI, and mixed UI. As per Ayurveda, urinary disorders can be classified as mutra apravrtti rogas and mutra atipravritti rogas. UI is considered one among the latter one. A 38-year-old married woman presented with involuntary urination of 1-month duration along with urinary urgency and frequency lasting for 3 months. She was also having abdominal pain with this. After thorough examinations and investigations, the patient was treated with ayurvedic medications for 42 days.
