Incontinence is defined as the “lack of voluntary control concerning urination.” It’s a frustrating and embarrassing problem that millions of men and women suffer from. However, with our help, you can live without constantly worrying about this issue.
What is incontinence?
Incontinence occurs when the sphincter muscle is not strong enough to hold urine in the bladder. Because of this, involuntary leakage could occur whether your bladder is full or not. While most people who suffer from incontinence are female, there is a good percentage of men who deal with this frustrating issue as well.
Incontinence is not an umbrella condition – one size does not fit all. Some people have this condition due to a medical issue or a past treatment. There are several different types of incontinence such as: hypermobility, intrinsic sphincter, overflow, pelvic prolapse, stress, total, and urge.
It’s common for men who deal with incontinence to also suffer from erectile dysfunction. Thankfully, we can help with both conditions!
