    20 and losing control

    3
    i am a 20 year old male and college student as well as soccer referee. Over the last year I feel I have been losing more and more bladder control. I was diagnosed with OAB when I was in grade school so i assume that is the cause. During the day I have strong urges but can usually make it to the toilet but occasionally will have small leaks so I use male guards. At night I tend to wet heavily so I...

    My Life Story As A Wetter

    3
    I was a late potty trainer. I vividly remember being in diapers as a kid up until it was time for school. Never had an incident until the first grade. And it was twice in week. I went to the doctors and turned out that I had a urinary tract infection. Not common for boys my age, but still. So it was back to diapers until it cleared up. The kids didn’t tease me since they heard it was due to an...

    Intimacy...

    7
    Does anyone have issues during intimacy? I always get a huge amount of anxiety when there is the potential to be with someone because I am afraid of having an accident on them / in front of  them. This sort of thing makes me despondent since I feel that I will never find a partner who is understanding.

    Totally urine and bowel incontinent

    5
    I'm a 27 year old male, after I got into a four wheeler accident the nerves in my lower back got massively damaged. Now I'm totally incontinent. I don't feel it until I'm wet or having a bowel movement. I'm embarrassed, I feel ashamed and don't want to even leave the house most days. Does anyone have any tips for the day to day life of wearing diapers 24/7? Thank you for listening, I needed this...

    ...and then my bladder gave up

    2
    A "little" introduction:I'm a 34 y/o male from the Midwest. I'm a combat veteran, a business owner (in the building trades), and I have a love of the outdoors. I'm in a long term relationship with an amazing woman. And my bladder doesn't work. About a year ago, I started having nighttime accidents. Then they started happening during the day. It wasn't long before I lost complete control.  I had...

    Foley Catheters

    0
    Is this the right group to ask about Foley Catheters?  My 96 year old dad has one.  We change out the bag to a leg bag in the morning.  And then back to larger bag overnight.  Would love to find an easier system to change bags ( rather than the rubber tube, maybe a "quick click" concept.

    I added a new group, Shy bladder. While not strictly incontinence-related, it can lead to episodes of incontinence, when you are unable to use a public restroom for any reason. In my case, even if I do get to a public restroom on time, I have difficulties using it, especially if there are other people there. I wonder if anyone else deals with this.

    The Highs and Lows

    As I learn to live with incontinence, I'm learning what works fot me and what doesn't.Trying to pretend I'm not incontinent does not work for me. I have gone from trying to keep my bladder empty by going to the bathroom every two hours, during the day and dealing with pads and leakage and the occasional full on accident to wearing a pull up all day and just changing when I need to. I am wearing...
