Over the past couple of months, I’ve recently become incontinent. I’ve had medical tests and there doesn’t seem to be a underlaying reason as to why this has happened. The hospital has advised me to just start wearing incontinence pants or pads but I have no idea where to start this is brand new to me. What pants or pads are right for me? where do I buy them? I really don’t want to be going into a shop to buy them personally! I’m only 42. Please help!!
Sorry to hear this is worrying you. It can be hard to know the right approach to managing incontinence, especially if the condition is new to you.
As for establishing the cause, it is useful to know which type of incontinence you have. Have you been diagnosed with a certain type? Feel free to read our blogs about the following main types:
The correct pants or pads depends on your mobility and how severe your leaks are. Would you say you are quite mobile? Is your incontinence light or heavy?
