Action point


Both men and women can suffer from incontinence.

In the case of young women, incontinence is not as prevalent. It tends to become a problem around menopause, and the prevalence then steadily rises into later life.

In men, the prevalence of incontinence is much lower than in women. Men also tend to become more incontinent with age, but in 70- to 80-year-old men the rate is about half that of women.
