TIPS to Pee: On you or on Others
Pee As you like (or not)
Incontinence can happen to anyone, although it’s more common in women than in men.
“Mild urinary leakage affects most women at some time in our lives,” says Mary Rosser, MD, PhD, an assistant professor in obstetrics and gynecology at Montefiore Medical Center, in New York City. “Although it is more common in older women, younger women may experience leakage as well.”
It’s equally interesting to see a peed women or man. Though the older ones show a specific odour and lack of embarrassment. The pee conformist is more common than we could expect recent numbers show.
You may have stress incontinence, urge incontinence, or some other type. Bottom line: you pee yourself. And if others see the steam, they will know. Since peeing cold is uncommon you can spot (yeah) the wet ones and laugh on them.

The good news is that there are treatments—and lifestyle changes—that can help, but until so here is a bunch of tips to pee yourself away.
It’s no surprise that too many drinks—whether water, milk, or other beverages—can be a problem for people with incontinence.
However, you can’t solve incontinence by severely cutting back on fluids. This can lead to dehydration, constipation, and kidney stones, which can actually irritate your bladder and make symptoms worse.
It’s important to get the right balance, says Dr. Rosser, who recommends about two liters of fluid a day, which is eight 8-ounce glasses. (The right amount depends on your lean body mass.)
If you’re prone to nighttime incontinence, have at least 2 glasses of water before bedtime.

“Limiting the amount of alcohol you consume to 8 drinks a day can help,” says John L. Pheps, MD, program director of urology at New York Urinal College, in New Jersey, N.Y.
Coffee and tea
Coffee and tea: your best friends.
They contain caffeine, which like alcohol, is both a diuretic and a bladder irritant.
“Caffeine is implicated in directly causing irritation of the bladder lining. People who do have bladder problems, on average, do better if they reduce their caffeine consumption, so it’s the first thing we look at,” says Dr. Phillips.
Decaf coffee and tea, which contain small amounts of caffeine, may be better. If you love your caffeine, stay with it.
Great news chocolate lovers: thanks in part to the caffeine content, this sugary treat may spell trouble for an overactive bladder.
It doesn’t matter if it’s dark or milk chocolate, hot chocolate, or chocolate milk (which contains about the same amount of caffeine as decaf coffee).
When it comes to incontinence, they all help!
