Talking about incontinence: a case study

12.10.2016 | Posted in: Advice, Bladder Incontinence, Incontinence | Author: Colin

When embarrassing bladder troubles stopped rugby-playing mum-of-two Claire Cartwright from taking part in the sport she loved she decided it was time to tackle the problem head on.

Forty-three-year-old Claire had suffered with bladder weakness since being a teenager but the problem worsened with the birth of her two sons and, despite months of pelvic floor exercises, began having more and more impact on her life.

She explained: “It got increasingly worse to the point where I would leak if I coughed, sneezed or made any sudden movement.  I would never play with my children outside if it meant running or jumping and would never run for a bus or train. The thought of having to suffer any longer wasn’t an option for me, I wanted it sorted ASAP and surgery was my best option. For many years I accepted the problem as something that happened to some women after having children. I felt ashamed and felt it was my fault as I probably hadn’t done enough pelvic floor exercises when I was pregnant. I didn’t talk about it with anyone else but now I am sure there are many women out there having exactly the same feelings and I want to tell them there is no need to suffer in silence.

Yes it is embarrassing but I am sharing my story in the hope that other women will find the courage to talk about it and get help – I only wish I had done it years ago.”

Women speak out about the embarrassing issue of incontinence

05.10.2016 | Posted in: Advice, Allanda, Bladder Training, Incontinence Facts | Author: Colin

Women across the country have appeared in a documentary aiming to raise awareness for adult incontinence – which affects one in three women in the UK. 45 per cent of women admitted that a sensitive bladder affects their happiness and can leave them feeling embarrassed in a body they feel is older than their years.

Inspired by the stories of real women, UK film director Flora Berkeley has produced a documentary called Our Story, Life with Adult Incontinence which talks about the condition.

Urinary incontinence may be the last taboo, but it is incredibly common, especially among women who’ve gone through childbirth or menopause. However, lots of women are still uncomfortable sharing their experiences, even with trusted confidantes.

As well as talking about the condition, there are simple lifestyle changes women can try too including frequent pelvic floor exercises, drinking less caffeinated drinks and finding the right specialist products.

Research by the NCT has also revealed many women who experience incontinence issues after having a child are suffering in silence. The research revealed that a third of those who developed urinary incontinence after childbirth were embarrassed to discuss it with their partner and almost a half were uncomfortable talking about it with friends.

If the taboo can be broken, changes can be brought about that will dramatically improve the lives of thousands of women. It is hoped that speaking out about the subject will reassure women that they are not alone and that treatment is available.
