If you are experiencing incontinence or supporting a loved one who is, then it's important to know what you're dealing with.
Getting the right incontinence advice is important when you're managing the condition. In this guide to incontinence, find the essential information that you need when you're searching for incontinence advice.
What is incontinence?
Incontinence refers to an inability, or partial inability, to control your bladder or bowel.
If you have urinary incontinence, you may find that you leak urine or completely lose control of your bladder.
Faecal incontinence, or bowel incontinence, is when you don't have complete bowel control. You may experience very loose stools that you can't hold in, or get a sudden urge to use the toilet.
Some people with incontinence do not feel like they need the toilet and only realise once they've soiled their underwear.
Is incontinence a common condition?
Incontinence is not uncommon. In fact, it's thought that between 2.5 and 6 million people in the UK are dealing with some level of incontinence.
The majority of people that experience incontinence are over the age of 60. However, many younger people are also incontinent.
Many children experience nighttime incontinence long after they're toilet trained, even when dry during the day. Incontinence can be a problem for all ages and affects both men and women.
What causes incontinence?
There are many potential causes of incontinence. It is typically caused by damage to muscles and nerves, which naturally wear down as we age.
Women may experience incontinence after pregnancy and childbirth, particularly with vaginal deliveries. Your weight may also have an impact, putting more pressure on your bladder.
Some conditions, including neurological and connective tissue disorders, may increase your risk of incontinence. You may also experience incontinence as a side effect of medication.
How should you manage your incontinence?
If you're experiencing incontinence, visit your GP for support. This isn't an embarrassing condition to be ashamed of, but one that's faced by millions of people.
You may be prescribed medication or advised of pelvic floor exercises that can help you to regain control. In rare circumstances, you may be offered surgery to help.
Often, incontinence cannot be completely avoided. In these cases, you may need incontinence products to maintain complete comfort and dignity.
What incontinence equipment is available?
Many people use incontinence pads to absorb any day-to-day leaks. You may also like to use seat pads, to protect your furniture. There are also nighttime solutions such as waterproof mattresses that can give you peace of mind.
A waterproof mattress reduces the risk of problems at bedtime, protecting your bed from any nighttime leaking. A waterproof mattress can be wiped clean easily in the event of an overnight accident.
Alternatively, consider a waterproof mattress topper that will fit over any existing mattress to give you a wider choice.
