Urinary and bowel incontinence affect millions of people. Some ways to prevent incontinence include Kegel exercises, avoiding caffeine and alcohol, or staying away from certain medications. However, sometimes accidents still happen and cannot be controlled. It may then be time to consider incontinence undergarments.
For traveling, social situations, or times when a bathroom is just too far, incontinence undergarments are a good backup option. These are available at many major retailers, and come in menâ€™s and womenâ€™s sizes. There are disposable undergarments, as well as washable versions. Newer incontinence underwear garments are less bulky or noticeable under clothing, and usually come in plus sizes.
If incontinence is affecting your life and you rely on incontinence undergarments, there is help. At the Incontinence Institute, we offer individualized treatment plans for urinary and bowel incontinence and overactive bladder.
