Incontinence is any involuntary loss of urine or faeces and it affects around 4.8 million Australians of all ages. It does not have to mean a total lack of control – it might be just a little bit of soiling or leaking. Faecal incontinence can also include loss of wind and faecal smearing.
Incontinence is not a normal part of ageing and, sometimes, exercise programs can help greatly reduce - and even eliminate - incontinence. Ongoing confidential, professional support is available locally.
