Many can feel alone, but actually you shouldn’t. Although incontinence becomes more common with advancing age, it is not just older people who are affected.
It is estimated that a quarter to a third of men and women in the United States suffer from urinary incontinence*. Incontinence is not at all a rare problem and many effective solutions are available, so it should not stop you from living a full and active life, whatever your age.
The most important thing to do when having symptoms is to talk to your doctor. Many cases go undiagnosed and untreated because people do not know how to talk to their doctor about the problem, so do this as a start and decide together on a solution that suits you and your life.
