This is how a man tells about his problems:
‘It has something to do with modesty. You definitely feel less masculine with this kind of problem. It is very humiliating. Yes, it can feel so humiliating that you would not dream of asking for help – in spite of it being so terrible’.
It is the fewest men who has talked to the doctor about their troubles with urination. Only one in every four men who has trouble with emptying their bladder and one in every 5 man with an overactive bladder who have asked their doctor for advice. A lot of men believe it is a problem they have to live with, that it comes with age or that nothing can be done about it.
However, far most people can be helped. If you cannot solve the problem yourself, you should seek help at your general practitioner.
