You Are Not Alone: Let's Talk About Male Incontinence
It’s natural for men dealing with light incontinence for the first time to be frustrated, embarrassed, and self-conscious. No man wants to be surprised by wet spots on his pants, especially during important occasions or activities that he’s enjoyed for years. We get it guys, it sucks. But you know what? It’s also not a big deal.
Incontinence has been happening to men since the first caveman thought about retiring his hunting club in exchange for some golf clubs. It affects men everywhere, every day. According to an official Reviews in Urology 2009 report, 11% of men between the ages of 60-64 and 31% of men older than 64 have dealt with this issue. That’s either one in 10 or one in three guys, depending on age. If you’re playing in a foursome with any given group of retired guys, at least one of those guys most likely is facing light incontinence.
According to a 2014 CDC report, incontinence may be caused by age-related changes in the lower urinary tract as well as conditions not even related to the urinary system. Some of these conditions include diabetes, cancer, and stroke. Incontinence just happens. It happens to a lot of men for a lot of different reasons. It’s been happening since the beginning of the world and when it happens to you, it’s definitely not the end of the world. The problem is as old as time. Problem is, most of the solutions have been, too. Diapers, guards, clamps, and repurposed feminine pads are a thing of the past thanks to MDP.
