Since incontinence products are mostly an out-of-pocket expense, they are generally purchased at a local store. Purchasing these products from our online store means you won't have to go through the embarrassment of buying diapers and pads at your drug store or Wal-Mart.
Urinary incontinence or the loss of bladder control can happen to anyone. Symptoms range from involuntary leakage to uncontrollable loss of urine. Most of the time, it happens because muscles that keep your bladder closed are too weak or too active. Other causes include prostate problems and nerve damage.
There are four basic types of incontinence:
Stress Incontinence: This form is the most common and can affect adults of any age. It is caused by weakened Sphincter and pelvic floor muscles that allow urine to escape the bladder when any physical stress is experienced, even minor stresses such as sneezing, laughing or coughing.
Urge: Sudden or overwhelming urges to urinate caused by muscle spasms, an overactive bladder, or even a urinary tract infection.
Overflow: Men are most often the victims of overflow incontinence, which can signal an enlarged prostate requiring immediate medical attention. In this condition small amounts of urine leak from the bladder at any time.
Fecal: Fecal or bowel incontinence is more common in older women and can be caused by constipation, damage to the anal sphincter muscles, damage to the nerves of the anal sphincter muscles or rectum, loss of storage capacity in the rectum, diarrhea, or pelvic floor dysfunction.
