Life with incontinence

Living with incontinence, and dealing with one or more of the symptoms on a daily basis, can have devastating impact on quality of life, as it entails hygienic difficulties that can lead to social isolation, loss of employment, and cause psychological side effects. 
The burden of symptoms, e.g. the constant fear and preparation for involuntary leakage accidents, can result in emotional distress, depression, anxiety, sleep disturbances, and issues with sexual life.
