Incontinence is not something that affects only the elderly. Daytime wetting or urinary incontinence is a difficult condition that many teenagers have to deal with. Most children will be dry during the day by the age of 3, but for some, incontinence can continue well into their teens. Incontinence may include daytime wetting, bed wetting, soiling (faecal incontinence) or a combination of these issues.
Incontinence affects 1 in 4 adult Australians, with urinary incontinence affecting 10% of men and 38% of women in Australia. 80% of Australians suffering from urinary incontinence are women, with half of the women aged under 50 years old. Although over 70% of people suffering from urinary incontinence don't seek professional medical help. Faecal incontinence affects 6% of men and 10% of women in Australia, with 44% of these women aged under 50 years old.
Symptoms of incontinence may include:
Leaking urine when coughing, sneezing or exercising
Leaking urine when rushing to the toilet
Wetting the bed during the night
Feeling like your bladder isn't completely empty
Rushing to the toilet on a regular basis
At Conticare we realised that there were not enough providers of incontinence products to adults who are experiencing stress as a result of their own continence issues. We have therefore taken the step to create a dedicated section on our website to address and provide solutions to this segment of the community. Any suggestions for additional products are always welcome and we would greatly appreciate any input from you, our customer.
There are a huge range of continence aids and incontinence solutions for adults, from pads and diapers to briefs and protective underwear. The type of product you choose will depend on your level of incontinence, as well as your personal preferences. Disposable products including pads and diapers are the most basic type of incontinence product, are available in a range of different sizes, and are ideal for light to moderate incontinence. Briefs and protective underwear are more substantial products that provide greater, reliable protection against leaks, and are better suited for moderate to heavy incontinence. No matter what level of incontinence you suffer from, there is an appropriate product available to help you feel confident, manage your condition and maintain a high quality of life.
