Living with incontinence can be challenging and uncomfortable, but with the right continence care products, it is possible to manage it with confidence.

What is Incontinence?

Incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine or faeces from the bladder or bowel. It can happen to people of all ages, but it is more common in older adults. Incontinence can be caused by a range of factors, including age, gender, pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, obesity, and certain medical conditions such as diabetes, Parkinson's disease, and multiple sclerosis.

 

Types of Incontinence

There are several types of incontinence, including:

Urge incontinence: This type of incontinence occurs when the bladder contracts suddenly, causing a sudden urge to urinate.

Stress incontinence: This type of incontinence occurs when the pelvic floor muscles are weakened, causing urine to leak during activities such as coughing, sneezing, or exercise.

Overflow incontinence: This type of incontinence occurs when the bladder is unable to empty properly, causing urine to leak.

Mixed incontinence: This type of incontinence is a combination of urge and stress incontinence.
