Urinary incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine and is surprisingly common. It is thought that up to one in four people in the UK, men and women alike, will have a problem with bladder control at some time in their lives. Whilst, often thought as an inevitable consequence of getting old, having had children or a disability, there are many other reasons and conditions responsible for it happening.
You are not alone
Yet despite it being a well-known problem, urinary incontinence remains a taboo topic. Embarrassment and shame can often stop people from talking about it. In addition, they will not feel able to access healthcare providers, or approach specialist urinary product and service suppliers, who may be able to help them.
Living with urinary incontinence can be difficult; but delaying the process of seeking help can sometimes narrow what treatment options are available and even limit their effectiveness.
