Millions of Americans deal with incontinence. Incontinence can make everything from a trip to the grocery store to going on vacation a stressful ordeal.
If you or a loved one have experienced incontinence, you should know that you’re not alone. 1 in 5 adults—about 20%—experience frequency, urgency, or an overactive bladder. This number rises to about 50% for residents in long-term care facilities.
Even though incontinence can be embarrassing, annoying, and very inconvenient at times, it shouldn’t stop you from living your life. Here are some helpful tips for managing it so you can make the most of your next outing and have some stress-free fun!
Some people suffer from incontinence because they don’t stay hydrated enough. Some may drink too many fluids. Others still may be irritated by certain beverages. Alcohol, soda, caffeinated drinks, spicy foods, acidic drinks or fruits, and teas are bladder irritants that may increase how often you need to go.
When you are in an unfamiliar place, one of the first things you can do to get more comfortable is to know where the bathrooms are. That way, you can plan bathroom breaks ahead of time and use the restroom before it’s a dire emergency. You can even check out locations or routes ahead of time so you know exactly where and when you can stop.
If you use products to manage your incontinence, make sure to pack them and have them available whenever you might need them. If you’re traveling, make sure to have incontinence products on you: either in a carry-on, backpack, or purse. That way, you can quickly access them if you need them. You’ll also have some in case you get separated from your luggage.
