Male Incontinence Products
There are three main types of male incontinence:
Stress incontinence: This type of male incontinence occurs when outside pressure causes an already weakened bladder to leak urine. This outside pressure may come in the form of a cough, laugh or from lifting a heavy object.
Urge incontinence: This kind of male incontinence occurs when you get an extremely strong and sudden urge to go to the toilet, but you don’t always make it in time. Your bladder may also contract without you wanting it to, causing involuntary urine leakage.
Overflow incontinence: This variation of male incontinence occurs when your bladder is overfilled, and you cannot seem to fully empty your bladder. The bladder then leaks out the excess urine later. This is the most common form of male incontinence due to the high incidence of enlarged prostates and prostate surgeries carried out in Australia.
