Up to six million people in the UK are thought to experience urinary incontinence. There are several types of urinary incontinence, but the most common types can include stress incontinence, urge incontinence, mixed incontinence, overflow incontinence and functional Incontinence. Adults can also experience other problems, for example, bedwetting.
People commonly self manage, maybe never seeking or being aware about the servcies and professional advice that is available to them, sometimes assuming nothing can be done to help.
It is important to know that a lot can be done to cure, treat or manage bladder problems, which are often difficult to talk about. It is not an inevitable consequence of aging and there is a much wider choice of treatments, products and management options available to people.
