In the UK, it is estimated by the NHS that between 3 and 6 million men and women have some degree of  incontinence,(1),   but this does not take into account the many people who do not seek help or perhaps are not incontinent but are managing with bladder or bowel dysfunction.

 

Feelings of shame, anxiety or embarrassment can stop people from talking to others but I am passionate about getting people talking about it to make help and support more accessible.

 

Bladder and Bowel problems are commonly associated with the ageing process but there are many different reasons such as Childbirth, Menopause, Prostate enlargement and even Constipation to name a few but they can have a great impact on a person's quality of life.

 

If you answer YES to any of the following:  

 

  • Are you careful about where you go and what you drink?

 

  • Do you worry about where the next toilet is?

 

  • Have you stopped doing activities that you enjoy?

 

  • Experience embarrassing leaks?

 

In many cases bladder and/or bowel symptoms are treatable with some simple lifestyle changes.
