I’m currently overweight and have started noticing rather large leaks coming from my bladder and I cannot predict them and don’t know exactly when it does happen. I’m worried I’m going to smell if I go out or if anyone visits me. I’m only young and was told excessive weight can cause incontinence. Is this true? Have I permanently damaged myself? Can I fix this? In the meantime, what can I do? I’m so embarrassed!! Sorry for all the questions.
How did the appointment with your Doctor go? Did they recommend any treatment methods or products?
Using normal sanitary pads will not provide you with as much protection as needed, as they are not designed for absorbing urine.
You may not want to wear a bulky product, so a highly absorbent pad would be a discreet option for you. You can purchase these online, so you don’t have to be embarrassed walking into a store. Would you like some specific product recommendations?
