Stress Induced Incontinence Problems

Stress incontinence may be temporary, consult a physician if incontinence persists.

If you suffer from urinary incontinence, you know how stressful it can be to worry if you will have the uncontrollable loss of urine at any minute. As our bodies age, there are many things that stop working correctly. Urinary incontinence happens from the bladder having difficulty contracting and holding the urine inside for long durations of time. If you are tired of going to the bathroom often, there are some products and things that can help you.

The first thing you need to do is to look for the right type of adult pads, underwear or diapers that can help you get through the day. The incontinence finder tool will match you up with the right type of product with the amount of urine you are passing daily. Visit to find the right type of adult product that will make your life a little easier.

Once you are able to find adult incontinence product that can allow you to get through the day, the second thing you need to do is search for ways to reduce the amount of stress you are placing on your bladder. We are not talking about psychological stress that you feel from worrying about bills and other things; bladder stress is caused from sneezing, coughing, and lifting heavy objects. You need to allow other people to come and lift heavy objects for you as you are starting to age and you may be unable to lift objects that are over 25 pounds or more. Speak with your doctor if you are suffering from a chronic cough or sneezing problems. Sneezing may be caused from issues like allergies. Simply taking the allergens out of your home like pet dander and flowers will allow you to have an easier time breathing and you won’t need to worry about having incontinence problems when you are out and about.

There are some other stress-induced incontinence triggers that you may need to watch out for:

  • Standing up quickly
  • Laughing
  • Exercise
If you know you will be involved in some of these activities, it may be a good idea to purchase some adult diapers and take them with you wherever you go. To find products made by Attends, visit or search for some made by Poise as they are designed specifically for female incontinence problems and will provide you with the support you need, without embarrassment as you enjoy a pleasant evening with your friends or family members.

Try going to the bathroom at least once an hour or before you head out to a social event. Wear incontinence products if you know you will be gathering with others and laughing and enjoying yourself. There is no way to truly control urine loss and without adult diapers you can be stuck in an embarrassing situation.

If your incontinence problems are causing you to withdraw from social situations and they are leaving you embarrassed, it may be time to speak with your doctor. There are some exercises you can do to try and strengthen the pelvic muscles that help to support the bladder. This may allow your bladder to hold onto the urine for longer durations of time. You may need to discuss surgery with your doctor, especially if you recently had surgery like prostate surgery and you are still suffering from incontinence problems.

Here are a few other things that may help you control your incontinence problems:

  • Lose weight. Excess weight presses down on the bladder, casing you to urinate frequently.
  • Quit smoking. This leads to coughing, which causes stress-induced incontinence problems.
  • Quit drinking caffeine. Caffeine causes urination to pass through the body frequently, causing you to have incontinence problems.
