It’s common for women to experience incontinence, or the involuntary leakage of urine, during pregnancy. This is due to the added stress that is being applied on their bladder. But after pregnancy – notably if the child is delivered vaginally – such incontinence issues have a tendency to persist due to the weakening of the pelvic floor muscles during childbirth. Incontinence after pregnancy can also persist due to the following conditions:
Nerve damage around the bladder.

Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control leading to the accidental leakage of urine. The condition can be mild, and include only a few occasional drops leaking, or it can be more severe, and include frequent accidents because the urge to urinate is too sudden and strong to resist. There are multiple different types of urinary incontinence, and knowing their symptoms and strategies for preventing and managing them can help you maintain freedom in your life.
Although regarded as a medical problem associated with old age, incontinence does affect people in their twenties. In addition to physically dealing with incontinence, young adults often carry feelings of shame and embarrassment due to bladder control issues. Unfortunately, the stigma surrounding incontinence (as well as its reputation for happening only to elderly people) frequently prevents younger people from enjoying the active, social life they should be experiencing at what is the most exciting and adventurous time of their lives.
Incontinence can be a complex condition to deal with. There is a lot of misinformation and myth surrounding this disorder, and as your trusted resource for men and women’s incontinence, it’s our job at Wearever to dispel any false notions. Here we separate facts from myths about incontinence.

Because of these growing numbers, more emphasis has been placed over the past seven years on managing incontinence symptoms and making it more feasible to maintain a “normal” lifestyle. Through companies like Wearever, protection against wetness, bacteria growth, and irritation has expanded in incontinence wear, but many women have resorted to using menstrual pads to act against their leakage.
