Unfortunately, as we age, incontinence products may become necessary. Many aging people fear this due to the stigma of possibly having to wear incontinence underwear.

At Health Products For You, we carry a wide assortment of incontinence adult pull-ups to match everyone’s needs and improve quality of life and peace of mind.

Incontinence comes in different forms, to effectively manage incontinence challenges, it is imperative to identify the type of incontinence you are experiencing.

Types of Incontinence

  • Stress Incontinence: This type of incontinence involves the involuntary release of urine when physical pressure is placed on the bladder. This pressure can be caused by coughing, laughing, sneezing, or even exercise. Basically, this type of incontinence is caused by physical events and not psychological issues.
  • Urge incontinence: Incontinence that is characterized by a sudden, strong need to urinate is considered urge incontinence. This sudden urge is accompanied by the bladder squeezing or spasming, therefore releasing urine uncontrollably. This type of incontinence is often called overactive bladder (OAB). This can be caused by neurological disorders, diabetes, and even acute
  • Mixed Incontinence: Often incontinence sufferers have symptoms of both stress and urge incontinence. Many of the causes include nerve/muscle problems, urinary system blockages, dementia or other mental health issues.
  • Overflow Incontinence: This occurs when the sufferer is unable to completely empty their bladder. More common in men, it can because by an enlarged prostate and can lead to an increase in bacteria and a greater rate of urinary tract infections. Other causes include nerve damage, blockage of the urethra, and certain medications (antidepressants, anticonvulsants, etc.).
  • Reflex Incontinence: Characterized by urine leakage due to bladder spasms, this type of urinary incontinence is often the result of neurological impairments such as multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, or damage from surgery or radiation treatment. This can also happen when the nerves that alert the brain are damaged, therefore allowing for involuntary urine leakage.
  • Functional Incontinence: In a properly functioning urinary system, an illness or disability can cause the leakage of urine. Often an illness can make you unaware of the need to urinate. This can also be caused by medications, dementia, and even mental illness, therefore causing urinary incontinence.
