Incontinence Aids and Information

Urinary Incontinence is the unintentional passing of urine and is a common problem thought to affect around 4 million people in Australia. If you are suffering from this condition, you are not alone; there are many people living healthy, happy lives that suffer from bladder and bowel weakness.

There are many incontinence treatments available, from do-it-yourself exercises through to surgical procedures. In fact, a recent study found that just losing weight helped reduce the instances of incontinence by up to 70% in women surveyed.

Continence Care

If you’re a caregiver, you’ll find an abundance of information on this site designed to assist you in helping a loved one with incontinence.

Female incontinence

3.7 million women experience incontinence due to pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, and a woman’s urinary tract in general. Female incontinence affects women of all ages, including young adults.

Causes of Incontinence

For women, weakened pelvic floor muscles invariably lead to bladder weakness. In men, it arises from a damaged sphincter muscle at the bladder’s base.

Incontinence Treatments

There are also several other ways to treat and manage incontinence

  • Kegel muscle exercises strengthen the pelvic floor, which in turn can reduce the instances of bladder leakage.
  • Lifestyle techniques to help regain bladder control, such as avoiding caffeine, lifting heavy objects and managing your fluid intake.
  • Incontinence Medication is also occasionally used. There are a wide variety of medications out there, and they all do different things but achieve the same goal; that is, to reduce the incidence of incontinence. It’s advisable to try other treatment options prior to medication due to the possibility of side effects.
  • Incontinence Surgery may be recommended if other treatments fail. Surgery can be used to increase bladder capacity, limit nerve impulses to the controlling bladder muscles or tighten the pelvic floor muscles. Sufferers of incontinence are advised to consult with their doctors. The more accurate the information the doctor gets from patients (patient history, symptoms and current treatments), the better equipped they will be to develop a strategy for managing and curing the problem.
