Incontinence Self Assessment

Do you:

  • Leak or wet yourself when you cough, laugh or sneeze?
  • Leak or wet yourself when you lift something heavy?
  • Leak or wet yourself when you play sport?
  • Sometimes wear pads to absorb urine, or ‘just in case’?
  • Often have to rush to use the toilet?
  • Sometimes not make it to the toilet in time?
  • Ever worry you might lose control of your bladder?
  • Wake up more than once during the night to use the toilet?
  • Plan your day around the nearest toilet?
  • Sometimes feel your bladder is not quite empty?
  • Leak or wet yourself when you stand up?
  • Leak or wet yourself as you get out of bed?
  • Dribble urine after going to the toilet?
  • Have a urine stream that stops and starts?
  • Wet the bed?

If you said YES to any of these questions, you may have a bladder control problem.

According to continence.org in Australia one in three women, one in ten men and one in five children have a bladder control problem. Whilst women and older people are the most likely to be affected, people of all ages can have poor bladder control.
