Maintain an active lifestyle

Are you worried about having a night out with the guys, a four-hour meeting or a game of basketball with your kids? There's no need to stop your daily activities just because you're dealing with urine leakage.

Here are some quick tips that can help with leaks and keep you in control:

  • Go before you go - Emptying your bladder before any planned activity can help set your mind at ease.
  • Knowledge is power - Learning where the toilets are ahead of time, can help you plan your activities better and you don't have to stressfully look for a toilet when you need to go. If you're going to watch a live game you could try to get seats near the toilets for example.
  • Stay hydrated - Don't drink less just because you want to make sure you won't leak urine during your activities. Drinking less will just cause dehydration, which will make your situation worse. In other words, remember to stay hydrated.

  • Avoid triggers - While it's important to stay hydrated, moderating triggers such as tea, coffee and alcohol will do you good. These drinks are known to make your body produce more urine.
  • Clench - Pelvic floor muscle exercises are known to help when it comes to urine leakage so make sure you keep up those clenching exercises. Especially since you can do them both at work and at home.
  • Urine leakage protection - There are great products available for urine leakage protection. TENA Men are specifically designed to offer discretion, comfort and security and are made to fit your lifestyle.
