Urinary Incontinence in Men - Know Your Treatment Options

25% of those incontinent are men
Males that suffer from urinary incontinence know how challenging it can be to live with this challenge on a daily basis. Urinary incontinence in men is not as common as it is in women and many of the males that struggle with it do not like to talk about it. This can make it harder on males to manage it and to know what type of treatment options are available to help them deal with incontinence. To help you in managing your problems with male urinary incontinence here are some options.

Do you want to find a “cure” from urinary incontinence or do you want to find treatment options that can help you manage your condition on a daily basis? Urinary incontinence is often treated by using adult diapers and other incontinence supplies that will help you to manage your condition each day. Some simple things like changing your lifestyle habits such as changing your diet along with increasing your exercise to gain more control over your bladder. There are other treatments that you can turn to as well like using a catheter or you may even need to consider surgery in order to help you to manage urinary incontinence.

Behavioral treatments are commonly used to help with incontinence as they do prove to be quite effective for many people. With the behavioral treatments you need to look at things like bladder training and strengthening your bladder muscles through Kegel exercises. The bladder exercises you will use often cause you to use the restroom at certain times throughout the day and to restrict your fluid intake at other times. Your goal is to work on teaching the bladder to hold in the urine and when it needs to release it.

In addition to using the behavioral treatments you may also need to consider using medications. Medications can help you to have control over your bladder issues as you are able to use medications that can give you nerve signals again. Other medications help to reduce fluid in the urine production. The nerve signals will cause issues with bladder contractions and this is what leads you to have bladder control problems. If you are using other medications for different things you need to talk to your doctor about these medications to see if they are stimulating the bladder and you might be having issues from these medications.

Surgery is something that some males need to consider turning to in order to work on getting control over urinary incontinence. One of the common surgeries used will be to use an artificial sphincter that is surgically implanted into the urethra. It will help to close the urethra until your body is ready to release the urine. Prostate surgery is another recommendation for males dealing with enlarged prostates and other concerns.

If you do not want to deal with surgery you can consider looking into purchasing a number of incontinence supplies. These incontinence supplies will help you to manage your problems with incontinence on a daily basis. You need to consider looking into a variety of adult diapers, incontinence pads, and many other supplies in order to find the right ones that can help you.

When using incontinence supplies you need to change them frequently and to cleanse the skin properly to prevent skin rashes and infections from occurring. You need to look at incontinence supplies that are comfortable and will be able to properly pull the urine away from the skin to make it easier for you to keep your skin clean and prevent infections from occurring. Incontinence supplies are a key part of helping you to properly manage your condition and to find relief from the embarrassment of incontinence.
