Being Intimate When You Have Incontinence

 Being Intimate When You Have Incontinence

Being intimate when you manage bowel or bladder incontinence can be stress inducing. Most of us have problems talking about sex at all, and talking about problems in the bedroom is just about impossible.

It might be an uncomfortable conversation to have with your partner, but talking about what you’re dealing with is the best way to gain the support and understanding needed to get back to enjoying your sex life again.

The causes of incontinence can vary based on your particular condition so the stress of even bringing it up or the physical demands of having sex can cause exacerbate your intimacy.

Our best advice so you can enjoy intimate time with the one you love is being open and honest, and asking your doctor for suggestions and best practices.
