Have you ever coughed or sneezed and suddenly felt that horrifying wet feeling in your pants? Stress incontinence is very common, particularly for women as it can be caused by childbirth and menopause. Male incontinence can be caused by something surprising – the changes in the seasons! This is because cold weather has a negative effect on your pelvic floor. Don't worry; we’ve got the info on how to avoid this!
A pessary is a device that is designed to provide support where the pelvic floor muscles are weak and pelvic organs have prolapsed or are in danger of prolapsing.
