Am I losing control of my bladder?
The inability to take charge of one’s bladder is a big concern for men at all ages.
For a younger man, the inability to control the urge to go to the toilet too often has a great impact on his work. It is embarrassing to repeatedly excuse oneself from meetings and discussions to go to the bathroom, or to wake up in the morning in a wet bed. This is easily explained by excessive coffee and tea consumption, but other medical reasons such as an overactive bladder or an untreated urinary infection could be present. It is crucial to see an urologist when the urinary urge is worsening and/or a single episode of urinary incontinence or infection occurs as these are rare in males.
