Buddies® - Urinary Incontinence


Urinary incontinence affects 1 in 4 women and 1 in 10 men at some stage in their life.

It shouldn’t get in the way of living a normal life, and with the right advice and products, incontinence is both treatable and manageable.


Women and Men

Urinary incontinence can affect both women and men, but the underlying causes are quite different. As such, the management of incontinence will differ greatly.


Urinary incontinence is a common condition, and if you are affected by it, you’re among millions of other Australians. With the right advice and information, which is free from our registered nurse, Treasure Vellis, incontinence is both treatable and manageable.

The section below covers types of incontinence, causes, and treatments and products that can bring you one step closer to managing urinary incontinence.



Living with incontinence isn’t something that you should feel embarrassed about; management is possible.
