Incontinence shouldn’t prevent you or your loved ones from living life to the fullest. Our panties allow people to go about their days without worrying about accidents.

Tracy Renko from Tracy’s Simple Finds recently had her grandmother try out our Women’s Cotton Comfort Incontinence Panties and shared what she thought on her blog:

“I really think these underwear are great. I have noticed a huge improvement in my grandmother, too. Now she is not scared to leave home. These are much better than adult briefs or pull-ups. They work great and don’t have a tight fit. There is no bulk whatsoever.”

Thank you for sharing your opinion, Tracy! We always enjoy hearing how our products can help people live their lives with confidence. To read her full blog post, click here.

Exercise And a New App To Help With Incontinence

Incontinence is an issue that over 25 million adult Americans deal with. Although the condition does not have any adverse affects on health, it is an inconvenience and can interfere with daily life as well as hinder social life. People that suffer from incontinence often withdraw themselves from social activity as a result of feeling embarrassed or ashamed of their condition. Luckily, there are various incontinence products on the market that are designed to help those affected lead normal everyday lives without having the worry of leakage being visibly apparent.

Improve Incontinence Within 8 Weeks

There is a revolutionary way in which incontinence is being managed and improved and it is in the form of the PeriCoach mobile app. This app acts as a coach and instructor, including an exercise challenge for those with incontinence which lasts eight weeks long. The PeriCoach system helps to improve incontinence along with a better quality of life.The developer of the app states that approximately 70 percent of females discovered that a structured and tailored program was beneficial in improving incontinence symptoms.

The eight-week challenge incorporates a virtual pelvic floor coach. PeriCoach works in conjunction with your workout equipment in order to strengthen your abdomen muscles, reducing the symptoms that are associated with incontinence. By partaking in the program for just a few minutes every day, incontinence patients can manage stress incontinence. Many individuals are unaware that by simply working out your pelvic and abdomen muscles, the strength of those muscles which are responsible for incontinence get stronger and stronger. This in turn reduces leakage over time.

The Role Bacteria Plays in Incontinence

bacteria-and-incontinence

In order to understand the role that bacteria plays in urinary incontinence, one must understand the way scientists understood bacteria’s habitation in the human urinary system. The urinary tract has long thought to have been a clean and sterile environment where no bacteria can grow. Since urine is constantly being produced and expelled from the system, it was thought, there was not enough time for bacteria to grow therein. Until today, researchers did not have the invasive tools needed to examine the growth of bacteria in the urinary system. As of today, however, the proverbial floodgates have opened and we now know more than ever about what is causing urinary incontinence.

The Cause of Urgency Incontinence May Lie In Bacteria

It was originally thought that urgency incontinence was caused by weak muscles, psychosomatic triggers, and abnormal signaling that prompted the bladder muscles to contract involuntarily. Unfortunately, these factors only seemed to account for about 3/5ths of the cases. That is, not all of the urgency incontinence cases could be explained by these causes.

Scientists and researchers continued to search for the other underlying conditions that made 2/5th of cases respond adversely – or not respond at all – to treatments catered to the above conditions. Researchers at the university of Oregon Health and Science University recently published a study in Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology, and found that that the bacteria that live in the urinary tract may hold the answers we seek (Source).

Bacteria Discovered In Urinary Tract

Even when clinical cultures come back negative, there still may be a host of biological life (i.e. bacteria) in the urinary tract. These bacteria may be responsible for many of the symptoms individuals with incontinence face. Researcher’s’ goal was to find how the urinary microbe is different between women with urgency urinary incontinence, and women without urgency urinary incontinence.

Healthy Bacteria: Key Differences Between Women With and Women Without Incontinence

They collected urine samples using a transurethral catheter and sequenced the samples with Illumina MiSeq., afterwards, processing them with workflow package QIIME. What that basically means is that the bacteria samples obtained were unadulterated or mismatched with other bacteria that may have come from external tissues. The findings were sound and suggested that there is a community of bacteria that live in the urinary tract! The most surprising finding: women with urgency urinary incontinence had less bacteria than women without urgency urinary incontinence.

This bacteria community creates a “microbial diversity” in women with urgency urinary incontinence. Between women with and women without urinary incontinence, it was discovered that women with actually had 14 less types of bacteria on average. The more severe your urinary symptoms, the less bacteria you are likely to have.

The Difference Between Healthy and Unhealthy Bacteria

We need both good and bad bacteria in our bodies. An unhealthy balance of good versus bad bacteria can be what leads to you feeling unhealthy or ill (Source). Bad bacteria can multiply and grow, leading to irritation, inflammation, and infection. Left untreated, bad bacteria can also contribute to a variety of health problems. Probiotics, defined as good bacteria actually help with a variety of bodily functions including digestion and homeostasis. Probiotics also help reduce the occurrence of urinary tract infections, a real concern for individuals afflicted by urinary tract.

Incontinence Underwear For Men and Women

Incontinence briefs and incontinence panties by Wearever are designed to minimize the bacteria that cause unpleasant odors. Bonded waterproof outer layers prevent leakage and spotting, while inner layers wick away moisture from the body while absorbing stray urine. The middle layer, made with Agion™ antimicrobial fibers prevent bad bacteria from multiplying and growing out of control.

Feel More Confident with Wearever Incontinence Underwear

floral-fancy-incontinence-panties

Big thanks to Melissa from Missy’s Product Reviews for her review of our Wearever Women’s Floral Fancy Incontinence Panties. We love the statistics about incontinence she provides and how Wearever products provide comfort and peace while she enjoys life.

“Over 25 million adults in the USA suffer from urinary incontinence and 80% are women which are why I wanted to introduce you to Wearever Incontinence. I also suffer from it but mostly when I sneeze or a cough but it is annoying to have to change my underwear multiple times a day as I just could not hold it and had an accident. There are times it is not easy to be able to change your underwear as you are at work or out shopping. Wearever makes men briefs and women’s panties that are washable over 200 times and not like wearing a diaper they are real underwear. I got the Floral Nylon Panties which offer an enhanced style and fashion with the same comfort and reliability you’ve grown to love over the years.

I found these fit me no problem and I had more confidence wearing these as I went to work or shopping as I was not afraid, embarrassed or paranoid I might leak. The layer of absorbance worked out just fine for me. They washed in my washer just fine and air dried them so they will not shrink as well.”

5 Questions about Pelvic Floor Muscle Exercises Answered

pelvic-floor-exercises

  1. What is the pelvic floor?

The pelvic floor is a layer of muscles that support the pelvic organs, which are the bladder and bowel in men and the bladder, bowel and uterus in women.

  1. What are pelvic floor disorders?

When the pelvic floor is weak or damaged, it does not properly support the pelvic organs. There are 3 main types of pelvic floor disorders, including urinary incontinence, fecal incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.

  1. What exercises strengthen the pelvic floor muscles?

Kegel exercises are a popular way to boost the control of pelvic floor muscles. The Mayo Clinic shares a how-to guide for Kegel exercises here. Prevention Magazine online also shared four exercises from Amy Stein, author of Heal Pelvic Pain.

  1. What are the benefits of pelvic floor muscle exercises?

Pelvic floor muscle exercises can improve bladder and bowel control as well as reduce the risk of prolapse. For women, these exercises can improve recovery after childbirth or gynecological surgery. For men, these exercises can ease the recovery after prostate surgery.

  1. Will pelvic floor muscle exercises solve urinary incontinence?

While strengthening the pelvic floor muscles through targeted exercises is linked to improvements in bladder control, it doesn’t solve bladder leakage all together. While trying the pelvic floor exercises, protect yourself from accidents with our comfortable incontinence underwear.

Travel Longer and Farther Without Worrying about Urinary Incontinence Accidents

Huge thanks to Wendy from PA Dutch Travel for sharing a great review of Wearever Women’s Lovely Lace Trim Panties. She points out several of our favorite features, including that they are comfortable and reusable. She shared:

“When I am traveling or hiking or going for extended periods without the restroom I am more prone to have a bathroom emergency. You have been holding your bladder for awhile and one big sneeze…and whoops, you know what happens!

So, I wore them all around town on different days. I also wore them at a long outdoor party and another long day of outdoor adventures. They are nice because they keep you dry and are not uncomfortable and bulky.

They hold up through many washings and they retain their shape…. The fact that they can be re-used is awesome. Not only will you save money but you will also be helping the environment. No more throwaways that are just adding to the already overflowing landfills. They trap liquid and have odor-protection which gives you the confidence you need to get through your day.”
