Male Incontinence: The Stats and Facts

When you’re experiencing incontinence, it may feel like you’re the only one, but it’s more common than you probably expected.



In fact, the Continence Foundation of Australia estimates that 30% of men who visit a GP have continence issues, but fewer than a third discuss it. This is most unfortunate as with information and treatment, most cases can be rectified, and the others improved or better managed.

It’s because continence is one of society’s last taboos and rarely discussed, so people have no notion of how prevalent it really is – as our research reveals.
