I’m 35 and have been single for over 5 years because my incontinence issue is so bad. I don’t just leak when I cough or sneeze, I can have just used the toilet, sit down at my desk and work and I feel it leaking out of me. It’s ruining my like. I’m only 35. I eventually went to the doctors about 18 months ago which was so embarrassing. They did an examination and said there were no issues with my pelvic floor. They tried me on several medications but none have worked. They said they’ve made a referral to a continence clinic but I’ve never heard anything and I’m scared to go back. The problem is getting worse. I’m constantly wet and I’m getting rashes.
You can speak to your GP or a urologist about behavioural treatment, they will create a personalised programme for you to follow.
