I had issues as a kid, but more or less dried up as I got older, apart from the odd accident. At 40 I started to pee my bed on a regular basis again, and then urgency started to get the better of me again. I have tried lots of treatment, including surgery, with limited success. I wear high captivity all in ones 24/7 and this allows me to lead a normal life. Yes I do wet myself frequently, but it is only me who knows. At least condition is just embarrassing, not life threatening. I now just rely on my protection, but sometimes feel that perhaps I have just given in too easily and perhaps I should still try to become dry. I must admit I do not miss having to run to the toilet only to find it is too late. I get very little warning of needing to pee, if I am near a toilet, I try to use it, but if I am more than 30 seconds away, I now do not even try and just use my protection. I sometimes think this is lazy, but does allow me to live my life in a normal way, rather than being tied to the toilet.
Does anyone feel the same?
As long as you have the right protection, you don’t need to feel embarrassed about relying on products if this helps you manage day to day life. Do you need any product recommendations?
However, if your incontinence is preventing you from doing everyday activities, there is no harm in visiting a Doctor. Are you interested in finding the cause of your incontinence if you do not know this? A Doctor can help find the root cause of your leaks and offer incontinence surgery that could work for you.
