Halloween is approaching soon. It’s the time when many people-adults and children alike, are busy planning for the perfect holiday costume ideas. But if you are an adult with incontinence, strategic planning of costume ideas may include the added stress of worrying about easy access for those many urgent bathroom breaks.
Incontinence can occur as a result of many different medical conditions, but in younger women, a very common perpetrator is pregnancy and child birth. It’s not uncommon at all for women to experience urinary leaking and a constant urge to go to the bathroom after child birth. In fact, recent statistics show that over 25 million people experience incontinence today in the United States and 80 percent are women.
Many women don’t realize that there are medical interventions that can help or even cure incontinence, but due to the nature of the condition, some women find it too embarrassing to consult with their physician. In fact, according to statistics from the National Association for Continence, the average woman waits approximately 6 years or more before speaking with her doctor about incontinence. If you are experiencing urinary incontinence after child birth, be aware that the longer you wait to seek medical attention, the worse the problem can become.
