I'm new here. I have suffered from bladder incontinence since having my daughter over 15 years ago. It's worse when I had a bad cough. I have tried using the correct sanitary products for my bladder incontinence, but they are too expensive and don't always work.I've had to resort to using sanitary pads that are not designed for periods as they are the only pad that stay where I want them to due them having wings which is alot easier for me as the ones designed for bladder incontinence move about in my underwear more than I do especially when I'm in bed.
I have mentioned the problem to my doctor, but they didn't seem interested in helping me.
I find it really embarrassing when it happens, but thankfully my fiance is really understanding. His twin sister know how I feel as she has the same problem as me, which is leaking when she coughs and /or laughs.
I'm dreading my brother's wedding next week as I know that if I've still got my cough, I'll start leaking.
