27.08.2014 | Posted in: Incontinence, News, Statistics | Author: Colin

A third of women over 18 in the UK suffer from adult incontinence according to a new study featured in the Daily Record.

The study revealed that of the estimated 12 million women in Britain with the condition, more than half struggle with depression and two-thirds feel embarrassed. More than a quarter of the women surveyed said it affected their sex lives.

Two-thirds of women with bladder sensitivity are likely to suffer from disturbed sleep, around 94 per cent feel exhausted and 43 per cent leak urine when they are physically active.
