The story of Paolo
In order not to admit I was incontinent, I would leave home less and less and avoid intimate moments with my wife.
"I never thought that some of my bad habits could cause my incontinence."
After the first episodes of urinary leakage, I worried about having prostate problems and I immediately went to the doctor, but everything was fine with my exams. Therefore, the causes had to be others: naively I did not believe that being overweight and a smoker were among the causes of incontinence, but my family doctor opened my eyes, gave me a series of tips to improve the situation and suggested I use a specific pad.
At first I felt uncomfortable, but I must say that no one ever noticed anything, so after a while I got used to it (and most of all I no longer worried about the risk of wetting my pants or of having to suddenly run to the bathroom).
However, the embarrassment was a constant with my wife: every time we had intercourse, I had urine leaks, so at a certain point I started to avoid intimate situations with her. This was beginning to undermine our marriage even outside the bed sheets and I could not accept it, so I decided to make another appointment with the doctor despite being ashamed at having to face such a delicate subject. Thank goodness I did it!
I discovered that there are some simple tricks and that it is enough to choose positions that do not "stress" the bladder: now our intimacy is back to that of the past and I no longer have to worry about anything other than her.
