Waterworks is also Men’s Business

Wetting your pants is often joked about as problem we develop in old age. It is also more commonly associated with women however there are a lot of men who will suffer the same problem.

Consumption of caffeine and alcohol can affect our waterworks so sometimes if there is a problem it may simply be a case of having more water and less coffee and beer. But the urge to go more often then others can also be habitual. For example if we ‘just in case toilet.’ We go to the toilet before we go out, when we walk past a toilet, before we hop in the car ‘just in case,’ which creates the feeling of fullness earlier.

Men can specifically have problems with toiling if they have an enlarged prostate, after prostate surgery or even if they have chronic constipation it can stretch the muscles and damage the nerves similarly to childbirth with women.
