I started using a slip pad just over a month ago for minor leaks and urges, but since I have I’m finding that I’m leaking more often, leading to actually wetting myself with no control. It’s got to a point where I’m now buying higher protection nappies as I can’t seem to control the urge and I empty my bladder. I don’t know whether this is due to becoming more comfortable and confident now I’m wearing protection, as it’s been a life saver in so many occasions. Is this a common problem when you start using protection?
Happy new year to you too mate, hope you had a good Christmas 🙂
I’ve been told I have overactive bladder syndrome, and to be fair, I’ve not really asked whether I can get them on the NHS. I do feel a lot more comfortable in nappies now, and it doesn’t bother me as much as it used to. It’s just strange to think that only a few months ago I was using slip pads, and now I’m using maximum protection. The cold air really does get to me, and regardless of how many times I use the toilet, as soon as I step outdoors it just comes. I don’t even think about it now, and do worry that I’ve become too reliant on them. I just can’t take medication as I don’t like the side effects and I have hypertension so have to be careful.
I’ve tried all kinds of products and this is the first one that’s worked for me. Can get a bit bulky and I do have to change more often, but less embarrassed about it now.
Hope you are doing ok mate.
