Can leaks cause depression?

Managing incontinence can feel daunting at first but it actually gets easier the more you talk about it and as you develop a specific treatment plan. It's very easy for a person with incontinence to withdraw socially and live a less full life. With the right protective hygiene products, incontinence becomes much easier to handle.

Remember that no matter how depressing incontinence may feel in the moment, it's very common. 25 million Americans experience leaks every single year. If you're dealing with leaks, you should reach out to your healthcare provider. They can talk to you about treatment for leakage as well as talk to you if you have concerns about depression.
