Incontinence: It's more common than you think

We encourage men, women and carers facing incontinence to share advice and learn from others — all in the name of removing the stigma surrounding incontinence and facing each day with more confidence.  

What is incontinence?

Incontinence is a condition that isn’t spoken about enough – and this involuntary loss of urine and/or faeces is actually far more common than many of us think. Knowing more about it and understanding what works for different people is an important part of the condition.

Types of incontinence

While there are a few different types of incontinence, Stress Incontinence and Urge Incontinence are most common. Stress results from exercise, coughing, sneezing or laughing. It’s often due to weakened pelvic floor muscles. Urge occurs from a sudden need to urinate without notice – happening if you’re unable to make it to the toilet in time.

What causes incontinence?

Causes differ for men and women, with childbirth being a common cause for women and prostate cancer being a key cause for men. Find out more about the different causes for both men and women below.

What treatments are available?

Generally, men and women will both benefit from diet and exercise, Kegel strengthening, and importantly staying hydrated to ensure the bladder functions the best it can. Read more on the specific for men and women below.
