aging and urinary incontinence

I am wondering if it is possible for someone to live well into their 80's or even 90's and not be bothered by urinary incontinence. Is this a natural part of aging for every person or are some individuals spared?

Re: aging and urinary incontinence

Well gee, I've made it to age 87 and am still dry. But the situation seems to be markedly different for males and females.

I guess everyone is different. My incontinence problems started when I reached 50 and show no signs of improving.

Re: aging and urinary incontinence

Hi,
I don't this condition affects everyone in their 80s/90s.
My mother lived to almost 87 yrs and had NO problem in that direction.
As a pensioner myself I find I only go more if I drink more, so when going out for the day I limit my fluid intake but I have NO incontinence problem,

Solofelix.

Re: aging and urinary incontinence

I was told that the more babies you have had with normal deliveries, the more likely you are to suffer from incontinence as you grow older. I had three babies, and so far I haven't had any problems. I'm 79. However, my daughter, who is only 55, is already having lots of problems with incontinence. She had four full term babies, and two stillbirths at seven months, where she had to go through labor.
