Anyone who has watched daytime TV will have come across adverts for incontinence products for women , but there are also products available for men with bladder weakness.
According to an article in the Daily Telegraph, men should discuss male incontinence with their partner and consider seeking medical advice. The article notes: “Don’t be put off seeing your doctor through embarrassment – they are used to seeing symptoms like this all the time.
“And remember that, if left untreated, symptoms of benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH) can often get worse and increasingly affect your quality of life.”
Men with bladder weakness can take a number of steps to manage the problem, including steering clear of caffeinated beverages on long car journeys and practicing breathing exercises to deal with the urge to urinate. A supply of male incontinence products should also be kept close by at all times. Finally, the article notes that while urinary incontinence can be distressing, there are ways of dealing with the problem – “including special absorbency products designed just for men in this position, such as Tena Men”.
More than 3.5 million men are affected by male incontinence, according to the website Male Incontinence UK.
