Incontinence — the loss of bladder control — is common and sometimes embarrassing. The severity ranges from occasionally leaking urine when you cough or sneeze to having an urge to urinate that’s so sudden and strong you don’t get to a toilet in time.
Though it occurs more often as people get older, urinary incontinence isn’t an inevitable consequence of aging. If urinary incontinence affects your daily activities, don’t hesitate to see your doctor. For many people, simple lifestyle changes or medical treatment can ease discomfort or stop urinary incontinence.
Whether incontinence is temporary or of a longer duration, individuals experiencing very light to heavy levels of incontinence will want to keep doing the activities they love and enjoy. That means the products they select should allow individuals to continue their lifestyle with confidence and security.
