Welcome to the Continence Foundation of Australia

Helpline Q & A

National Continence Helpline Manager, SUE BLINMAN, answers some frequently asked continence questions:
- My fit and healthy 16-year-old daughter continues to wet the bed at night and has occasional loss of urine in small amounts during the day. She has been seen by her GP many times and has been told she will grow out of it. She is getting very frustrated with everything. How can I help her?
- I have been a very active person all my life and now at the age of 92 years old I am worried that my current training at the gym with a personal trainer may have a negative impact on my pelvic floor muscles. Is it possible to hurt my pelvic floor muscles at the gym?
- If I layer continence pads on top of one another will it provide me with extra protection?
