What is urinary incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is the involuntary loss of urine. It is often caused by a weakened pelvic floor.
Is urinary incontinence a common problem?
Absolutely. If you’re worried that you’re abnormal for experiencing incontinence, please take a breath and remember that you are not alone. 4.2 million Australians over the age of 15 suffer some form of urinary incontinence or pelvic floor dysfunction.
Urinary incontinence or stress incontinence is especially common among pregnant women or new mothers. For many women, we recommend a program to help with the management of incontinence.
What is the best way to manage incontinence?
Managing urinary incontinence can be stressful and expensive. Incontinence management products like pads are usually costly, costing the average Australian woman roughly $490.00 a year. Luckily, there are alternative products such as Confidant, which are much more cost-effective and discreet.
I feel stressed. How can I deal with the psychological effects of urinary incontinence?
On a daily basis, a woman experiencing incontinence can feel flustered and embarrassed about her body. It’s normal to feel a little stressed or uncomfortable.
Here at Confidant, we believe incontinence shouldn’t be a taboo subject. After all, the problem is much more common than people realise! Don’t be afraid to discuss the issue with a close friend or trusted confidante.
If you need professional support, don’t feel embarrassed to ask your doctor or psychologist for help.
What exercises can I do to fight urinary incontinence and strengthen my pelvic floor?
Experts recommend that all women exercise their pelvic floor muscles every day throughout life. Regular gentle exercise, such as pelvic muscle exercises and walking, can help keep your pelvic floor muscles strong.
