Don’t Let Incontinence Affect Your Life

Incontinence is a very common problem, affecting over 4 million Australians. It is a distressing condition that can majorly impact ones quality of life. Approximately with 1 in 3 women and 1 in 10 men will experience leakage at some point in their lives.

However, don’t despair! Urinary incontinence is very treatable, in most cases without surgery.

Do you have any of the following incontinence symptoms?

  • When you laugh, sneeze, cough or exercise, do you sometimes leak a small amount of urine?
  • Are you ever “caught short” by a sudden, strong urge to pass urine?
  • Do you arrange your daily routine around where the nearest toilets will be?
  • Do you wake twice or more during the night to go to the toilet?
  • Do you experience bowel problems such as soiling, urgency, poor wind control or difficulty emptying?
  • Have you given up enjoyable activities like walking, aerobics or dancing, all because of the fear of bladder leakage or loss of bowel control?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then your symptoms are treatable! It is important to note that addressing these symptoms early means that you can get back to what you love to do sooner, plus it will stop these women’s incontinence symptoms from getting worse.
