Re: Incontinence smell issues with pads & undies

If I'm honest I wouldn't recommend pads for night time use. As you move around during the night the pad came become scrunched up or move totally. making leaks very likely. I would suggest pull ups and a waterproof, washable bed pad. As for smell most pads, pull ups and all in ones (adult nappies) us...

Hi all, At the moment I have total bladder loss, with no sensation. I am due to have spinal decompression surgery in the new year for a spinal stenosis.

Re: Incontinence problem

Re: 13 year old daughter bed wets

See your doctor about this as there could be a medical problem (weak or small bladder), or she may be a heavy sleeper. I'm...

Currently, I shave my pubic area but as I'm diabetic this can be problematical especially if I cut myself. Is there some form of hair removal that can be done o...

Gynocomastia that is caused by hormonal changes in puberty will normally resolve itself without further treatment. Unless there is an underlying cause such as a low testosterone level no treatment will be needed. Sometime in later life and especially for obese men it may cause a problem but diet and...
