Incontinence

Incontinence is the unintentional passing of urine or faeces. It’s a common problem that can affect people of any age and gender. There are different types and causes of incontinence, and different ways to manage it. Some of the possible causes are: severe or long-lasting constipation or diarrohea, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease, damage to the muscles or nerves that control the bowels or bladder, pregnancy and childbirth, obesity, ageing. 

Some of the possible treatments are: incontinence products, such as pads, adult nappies, pants, bedpads, underpads, changes to your diet, such as avoiding foods that make diarrhoea worse, medicines to reduce constipation or diarrhoea, pelvic floor exercises to strengthen the muscles used to control your bowels or bladder, surgery in some cases. 

 

If you have any symptoms of incontinence, you should see a GP or a continence service for advice and diagnosis. They can help you find the best treatment for your condition and improve your quality of life.
