How do I find the right absorbency level for me?
Does bladder weakness only affect older people?
No. This is a misconception. Although incontinence is common, not everyone will be incontinent at some stage in life. Bladder weakness can occur at anytime. Women may find it more common than men, especially after childbirth or during menopause. Speak to your GP if you are concerned.
