Possible causes of urinary incontinence and how to live with it

embarrassment due to incontinence

Urinary incontinence is a condition whereby you are unable to control your bladder and so you urinate on yourself involuntarily. Normally, when urine flows from the kidneys to the bladder, the brain is supposed to be notified that your bladder is full and this makes you get an urge to go to the washroom in order to relieve it. However, people who have incontinence either do not get this message from the brain or they get it when it is too late. So in this article, we try to explore the possible causes of urinary incontinence.

1. Pregnant women who are almost giving birth may face urinary incontinence
When a woman is pregnant and almost due delivery, the foetus will exert lots of pressure on the muscles of the pelvic floor which decreases the volume of your urine bladder. This makes the woman have incontinence even before the brain can get a message that the bladder is full.

2. Obesity is a leading cause of incontinence
Just like pregnancy, obese people have extra weight exerting presure on the bladder which make its volume small so that they will pee even before the brain gets a message that the bladder is full. Weight loss has been found to modify this condition.

3. Lifestyle diseases such as diabetes
At its worst stage, diabetes numbs your nerves such that you never know when your bladder is full or not. Therefore, your brain never gets the message that your bladder is full and so you will be finding yourself peeing on yourself involuntarily.

Having to battle with urinary incontinence is a tough battle that needs resilience and creativity. It is really embarrassing and if you are not ready, you will have yourself battling with self confidence very soon. So the best way to battle urinary incontinence is to first accept that you have it and then seek medical intervention.

If the doctor says that the condition is permanent, then you better get acquainted with incontinence products as soon as possible that are going to make your life hassle free without you going around stinking of urine odor or wet on your pants.

Dude Wet Wipes

dude wet wipes

How I First Heard of Dude Wipes

A few days ago, my crush finally agreed to a dinner date at 1800hrs but on a work day. Usually, I leave work at 1715hrs so it’s impossible for me to go back home to freshen up. I had to find an alternative. I have always hated toilet paper because of its harshness, toughness and its irritating nature. Don’t ask me to try the super soft ones because I did and the result? The doctor said it had a fragrance or dye that triggered an allergic reaction on the skin around my dude parts. It crumbled as I wiped and left itty bitty pieces of paper on me which caused itchiness. There was no way I was going to ruin my date, so I went on a search on the Internet and discovered Dude wipes. I had to try them- anything but tissue.

Features of Dude Wipes

Dude wipes saved my day. these are specifically for men to clean up their dude regions but can other too.

CONVENIENT PACKAGING. Dude Wipes are packaged in two different ways. Those that are individually wrapped which I find very convenient since they easily fit into your pocket. Whether I am travelling, in the gym or in the office, I can always have a wet wipe. The others are in a 48- count dispenser and I find them good for public use or in my bathroom at home.
DUDE SIZED. These wipes are 25% larger than the average flushable wet wipes making it easy and fast to clean my dude parts.

FRAGRANCE FREE. Dude wipes are fragrance free so I don’t get a butt packed with lavender scent. They are instead loaded with naturally soothing Aloe Vera and Vitamin E which is especially good for sensitive skins. Ever since I began using Dude wipes I haven’t had any allergic reactions. I feel fresher every time I leave the bathroom.

However, the new pack I bought recently seems a little bit off, the naturally soothing Aloe Vera scent is gone. At first, I thought I bought an expired batch but when I used it to clean up, I realized the quality had changed. Previously, it was thick but now it’s lighter and falls apart easily. If you were used to the previous ones, you will have to use several to achieve the same level of satisfaction.

Wrap up on Dude Wipes

I can say that before Dude Wipes, I dreaded the bathroom. It’s like they sparked in me a flame and I started enjoying it all over again. I no longer have to worry about any hygiene mess I make. I can confidently say that it is the best product so far released for the male world. This last batch was just a mistake that most companies make in their growth stage. So let’s give them another chance and continue treating our dude parts like the king of the throne.

What are the Best flushable wipes for septic system

Flushable Wipes friendly to your septic system

You have already heard that using wet wipes rather than toilet paper to wipe your butt is probably the wisest thing that you should be doing. But why? Toilet paper is hard, does not wipe your bum clean and even after wiping you are left with a whiff of shitty odor. At the same time, if you are not careful, you might end up hurting your butt as you wipe it with the hard, tough paper. So, what should you be doing? Wiping your butt with your hand like what the Arabs do? Well, that could be one of the ways but if you feel that it is not the best way, then you could try the best flushable wipes for septic system.

Yes, I know you are wondering whether even such a thing exists as flushable wipes that will actually not block your septic system. But hey, the truth is that there exists such a thing. In this post, I will explain how that works.

Flushable wet wipes are designed such that when you flush, they will take approximately 30 to 60 minutes to actually disintegrate. Yes, I know you are seeing that as a long time but hey, it is not long considering that when you are leaving the toilet, you will be feeling flesh, clean and really sanitized. Most of these wipes are fragrance free because they know that you do not want to go with a scent after going to the toilet, they are also smooth to your butt and alcohol free thus they do not cause any form of irritations.

Some of the best adult flushable wipes that I have seen on Amazon include:

Cottonelle Flushable Wipes

The cottonelle wipes are fragrance free, large enough to cover your butt and actually biodegradable when you flush. They are alcohol free so you can use on babies or even adults without the fear that they will irritate your skin.

Scott Wet Wipes

The Scott wet wipes are also mildly scented, do flush and are a great pick if you are having trouble using the toilet paper.

Dude Wet Wipes

The story of how dude wet wipes were invented was very amusing. Some guy goes to the toilet and after emptying his bowels, he finds that they are out of toilet paper. But next to the toilet seat is some baby wet wipes (unflushable, you should note). Since he does not know what to do, he does what every normal human being would do, he uses the baby wet wipes and hopes that nobody catches him doing it.

After doing so, he feels so fresh and it dawns on him that is the reason why kids are so lively and feel clean after being wiped. What follows is the journey to make dude wet wipes that though designed for men can also be used for women as well as children. They are large enough and come in great designed packages that is discrete enough so that no one knows what you just got.

Preventing your patient from falls in bed

When working in hospices or home care for invalid patients, all caution should be taken that the patient is safe. One of the commonest things that happen with these patients is that they either fall in their sleep or are feeling too much contained in the bed space that they end up falling as they wander away. This especially happens in the morning. So getting a bed rail for these people is of extreme importance.

Advantages of bed rails in hospital bed

Bed rails help prevent patient from falls. Dementia patients love wandering away all the time. So they will wake up and want to go away. As they do so, they might end up falling from the bed to the hard floor causing injuries and this could lead to more time in bed than you had thought it would take them.

Bed railings for seniors prevent wandering away. Picture this: you have a patient who wants to go away from you. Maybe they are having mental problems and they feel entrapped or caged with you. So they are looking for a way out. With rails, they are able to be withheld temporarily before you come and see to it that they do not leave the house.

Rails create independence in toddler who are just leaving the cot and starting to sleep in an adult bed. With the rails, they will not fall and still enjoy the comfort of a bed.

Disadvantages of bed rails

They might lead to entrapment. A condition where when the patient gets entrapped either between the rail spaces or split rails as they try to stand. Entrapment can even cause death or heavy injuries.

At the same time, bed rails especially when they are metallic and bare can cause injuries to seizure patients who are having head tremors. As they get the seizure fits, they will tremble hitting their heads and body parts against the rails and become injured.

The dangers of taking male enhancement pills

As people pop Viagra, Cialis and all forms of quick erect pills, they ignore the fact that these pills affect their cardiac activity. I have read through studies showing that taking Viagra increases your heart rate and all that, yet you still see men with high blood pressure, hypertension taking the blue boner pill.

Could it be because of ignorance or is it that they just want to enjoy the moment and just ignore the repercussions. Interestingly, most of the Viagra pill takers are educated and well to do off so the must have information at their fingers tips. They take the pills just out of desperation to get their libido up.

At the same time, there are those genuine takers who only take it because they do not know the consequences. In this post, I write to them informing them of the Viagra side effects.

They are:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Stomach upset
  • Impaired or blurred vision
  • Injury on the genitalia because of too much hardness

So how do these sex pills work

When you are sexually stimulated, a man produces nitric oxide by the brain to the erectile muscle of the penis. The nitric oxide stimulates enzyme that produces messenger cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP).

The cGMP on the other hand causes the penis to dilate so that the tissue fills up with blood causing an erection. When Viagra and Cialis are taken, they cause the cGMP effect to continue for a long time so that more blood flows to the penis.

So a user who has been thinking of phenq shoots me an email and they sound desperate for an answer. The email arrives in my inbox on Sunday and I have a tendency of not answering emails on Sundays till Monday since I am with family. But the person seems to be in a fix.

Caffeine is a good thermogenic fat burner. However, it should also be noted that it could cause a myriad of problems such as insomnia, anxiety as well as red blood shot eyes during the day.

The caffeine in phenq is so much that you are warned against taking the pill after 3.00pm

Other side effects of phenq

Who should not use phenq

  1. Pregnant women

Do male Enhancement Pills Help those with erectile Dysfunction

In our earlier post on Ed, we looked at the causes why a healthy man might just find themselves battling with this ugly situation of not pleasing their women simply because they are not able to get or maintain an erection.

In today’s post, we watch a video on whether male enhancement pills do work to improve a man’s erections as well whether you should buy them.

Refuting Dr. Leroy’s answer on male enhancement pills

Now Dr. Leroy says that male enhancement pills do not work to alleviate erectile dysfunction. But has anybody ever told him of aphrodisiacs such as ashwagandha or great sex pill such as testogen. My favourite and best male enhancement pill got to be male extra since I have seen that it is very effective.

It has worked for me and I believe that it should work for you too.

You will find that this pill works by increasing your level of blood going to the phallus.

According to increasetestosterone.review, increasing your testosterone levels is also important if you are to get any enhancement benefits. But why?

  • Testosterone is great in making men horny
  • It gives them more libido
  • Makes their bodies active such that they are able to spring to attention very fast.

What does your bra color say about you?

We already spoke about pumps for moms and today we talk about another topic surrounding the same, bra color.

Apparently, there is much more to bra colors than we think. Personally, I have always preferred black bras because they work so well with almost everything I wear. Furthermore, they do not appear so visible from the outside when worn with brightly colored tops and dresses.  But that is just me. You probably like another color and I am sure you have your own reasons.

I will start with black because it is my favorite. Research shows that a black bra is liked by the ambitious and mysterious women. Yes! You got it, and it sounds like my true definition. These women are go getters and their sense of smile is quite sophisticated. It also signifies elegance. You can never go wrong with a black bra. Whether you wear it with a red, yellow, white or blue panties, it compliments well.

White bras are liked by the fairly innocent women. These women are always on a go slow mood and them like simplicity more than anything else. White bra is also a certified symbol of purity. Al least now you know the color to wear on your wedding day.

A red bra is a sexy bra. It is commonly loved by women whose personalities ooze with passion. From a different angle, the red color also signifies dominance. Individuals with this trait always try to take the lead position in everything they do. From simple household duties to career and bed moments, they are always at the top of their game.

Pink color is feminine and so are pink bras. I am sure you have seen women decorate the bedrooms of their baby girls with pink items (Teddy bears, drawings, blankets, etc). Pink nurtures girlish tendencies. It makes one feel playful, soft and tender. It also symbolizes hope and optimism. Now you know which bra to wear and when to wear it.

How to care for leather shoes

Leather is very durable but without proper care of leather shoes, it shortens the durability and also distorts the general appearance of the shoe. Leather makes the best shoe to wear with walking boot. Lack of conditioning and care makes leather dry out resulting to cracks then falling apart making the shoes unsightly. Coating them with a layer of polish once in a while helps but you also have to keep them clean and protect them from harsh weather conditions.


 Important products for leather shoe care

Most of these products can be purchased at your local shoe repair shops, hardware stores and shoe stores. Make sure to buy good quality products that won’t be harsh on your shoes. Shoe shiners can also help you out if you are afraid of messing them up but for a fee.

For a shoe cleaning session you will need the following items;

  • Gloves
  • Soft shoe brush
  • Newspapers
  • Soft cotton cloth
  • Shoe polish
  • Leather conditioner
  • Weatherproof product (leather protector)


Cleaning leather shoes procedure

Start by wearing gloves to protect your hands because some of the products found in the polish may be toxic. Lay out the newspapers to protect your working surfaces and ensure that the room is well ventilated to allow free circulation of air.

Remove the dust or mud using leather cleaner specifically designed for soft leather and a soft bristle brush paying key attention to the crevices and cracks.

After you are done cleaning, allow them to dry then shin them using a soft cotton cloth like an old t-shirt.


Conditioning leather shoes

Ingredients found in the conditioner moisturize the leather membrane preventing it from cracking which is caused by drying out. When purchasing the conditioner, choose one that is designed for soft leather mainly a natural conditioner which gets fully absorbed by the leather. Synthetic conditioners basically sits on top of the surface of the shoe thus getting wiped off after a while.

Rub in a generous amount moving in circular motions until the whole shoe is covered. Then wipe the excess polish from the shoe and let it set for the leather to absorb a much as it needs for dehydration.


Polishing leather shoes

Shoes polishes exist in three forms: liquid, pastes or creams. Liquid polishes have the shortest durability and also in limited colors while the pastes last longer but are really messy to work with. So basically opt for creams because they have the longest durability, are available in many colors and are really easy to work with. Select the appropriate color for your leather shoes then apply a little amount to see whether it matches. If it does, rub in some more till the whole shoe is covered and move to the next. Allow it to fully dry then buff using a cloth or soft brush to shine.


Protecting leather shoes

Weatherproofing leather shoes generally protect them from water and other harmful elements which break down the leather shortening its durability. Beeswax products and spray protectants are ideal for protecting the leather from mild or moderate wet conditions and dirt.
